Too often schools focus on how to best support students experiencing trauma while completely missing the fact that many of their QTBIPOC teachers are struggling with their own personal trauma - in addition to the racial trauma they experience from their very school community. Teacher turnover rates have always been at an all time high - however, QTBIPOC teachers tend to be targeted for "political" reasons and more frequently pushed out of the classroom. This podcast centers the voices of QTBIPOC teachers who have been silenced, undervalued, and ultimately pushed out of their teaching environments. Chaski holds space for QTBIPOC teachers to speak their truths and create counter-narratives. Teachers need healing too and healing begins once we feel heard.

Chaski uncovers what unconscious wounds of theirs drove them into the classroom and how these wounds manifested once they were in the classroom. Chaski also explores how our codependency patterns seep from our personal relationships into the ways we relate to and with institutions and our workplace.Chaski hopes this episode inspires you to reflect on how your own childhood wounds informed your calling to the classroom and how these wounds may still be showing up for you.

Chaski had no idea they were a Highly Sensitive Person and Empath while they were in the classroom and didn't realize how these traits greatly influenced the constant hum of anxiety and dread that was their norm when they were a teacher. In this episode Chaski explains the concept of Energetic Hygiene, a practice they’ve been learning and embodying since they left the classroom, that has been critical to their overall wellbeing - especially navigating the world as an HSP & Empath. They explain what it is and how and why it applies to classroom educators as well. Chaski goes in depth about how to practice energy clearing and shielding for your self as well as your work space aka your classroom!
