Ep 1: Trauma-informed Teaching and Holistic Teaching Practices in Carceral Spaces
Show Notes

According to the Bureau of Justice, 32% percent of people in federal prison and 40% of all incarcerated individuals report at least one disability. The trauma that individuals experience or currently endure take away from one's ability to learn in the classroom, especially when gone unaddressed. 

Guests: Maiya Monteiro and Kristi Webb of the Maya Angelou Charter School speak about what it means to be an effective instructor in carceral classrooms, and how they are able to use a more holistic approach to teaching that acknowledges and addresses individual and societal issues their learners face.
