Include transgender related material in lesson plans. The best way to deal with transphobia is by educating your students. As a teacher, this should be one of your strategies of choice. There are countless ways you can work positive transgender issues into your classes. One example is use the treatment of transgender people as modern day analogy to the mistreating of other minority groups in history. Regularly check with the transgender student to find out how they and you are doing. You will miss stuff and you will make mistakes and this is a chance for the student to help you help them. You can also access how they are transitioning and any further help you can provide. There may be things they don’t have anyone to help them with and this may be something you can do for them from make-up advice to dealing with other kids. Treat them with dignity and respect but do not give a transgender student a free ride. Despite the transgender student’s situation and the extra sensitivity it demands, you should never lower your teaching standards. They should be measured to the same standards as all of the other students and challenged when they need it too. If they earn an F, do not hesitate to give it to them.
