Sam Long (he/him) and River Suh (they/them or he/him) are science teachers in Colorado and San Francisco respectively. They have a unique focus on gender-inclusive biology content. This means teaching topics like genetics, reproduction, and evolution in ways that affirm rather than omit or marginalize LGBTQ+ identities.
The are a part of a group with one other trans science teacher who have been doing this work in their classrooms for many years. Recently they began training other teachers and publishing essays, and compiling web resources (in progress) on this topic. They are experts in this emerging area of education.
River and Sam talk about the need for diverse and accurate biology curriculum, how it benefits all students, and how it looks in practice.
