In this week’s episode of 3Ps in a Pod, you heard from Kathleen Paulsen, New Teacher Mentor in Balsz School District, about her journey from being an anxious first-year teacher in a classroom with many refugee students to a mentor to first and second-year teachers working in their own diverse classrooms.

Here are a few terms used in the episode that may have been new to you:

    • Immigrant, asylum seeker, refugee: Host Donnie explained some of the nuances between these terms in the episode. You can find exact definitions and the differences between each on the World Health Organization’s website.

    • UMOM Center: The UMOM New Day Centers provide safe shelter, services, and affordable housing to people experiencing homelessness in Phoenix. “UMOM” comes from “United Methodist Outreach Ministries” and is generally pronounced “you-mom.”

    • The Welcome to America Project: Danielle mentioned this local organization that helps refugees resettle and integrate into the area.


Hosts Danielle and Donnie shared about their own experiences with diversity in school, including Donnie’s story about his first time seeing an egg roll. (Why is it called an egg roll anyway? This Chowhound reporter gathered some theories.) 

The hosts also mentioned the upcoming event Transforming Student Achievement with Dr. Donyall Dickey. You can learn more and register for that event here. Registering now gets you an early bird discount!
