Next year, if all goes as planned, Cakie will attend kindergarten at my school.
It recently dawned on me that I expect him to be out of the closet about having two moms. [Not that he’s aware of the need or urge to be in a closet in the first place.] But I have never been out of the closet about being one of two moms to my students. This is in great part because I tend to avoid conflict. I don’t feel like I would be very professional about any parent backlash that may ensue. I’m also not sure how to talk about it with my kids without going into too much detail. AND even if I came out, I’d have a whole new group of students and their families next year, and the next year, etc.
My administrators have always backed me up and have no problem with me doing it.
I just haven’t.
Third graders are nosier than second graders, so they’ve been asking.
Does anyone know anyone who has come out to their own class?
