How can teachers support students who have experienced immigration-related trauma? In today’s episode, Reyna Montoya shares with 3Ps in a Pod hosts Mary and Angelia about her journey through Arizona schools as an undocumented English language learner and then as a classroom teacher, which led to her creating the organization Aliento. This Phoenix-based organization works to transform immigration-related trauma into hope and action.

Montoya also talks specifically about how the current COVID-19 situation is impacting mixed status families and how teachers and leaders can address those students now and as schools prepare for a new school year in the fall.
