Multicultural / Diversity 

 

Diverse classroom communities are made up of children from various cultures, languages, abilities, traditions, religions, and ethnic backgrounds, etc. Diversity needs to be celebrated throughout the year to support acceptance and respect of the cultural backgrounds and family situations of ALL children in the classroom. The teacher should learn about and adapt to the cultural needs of each student they teach. A diverse classroom is one in which, the teacher plans experiences that broaden children’s perspectives and encourage appreciation of diversity. This acceptance is supported by the books read, the activities completed, and the lessons taught. The teacher models and demonstrates positive responses as he/she listens to and respects the children's diverse ideas, needs and thoughts.  It is vital to explore and honor the culture, language, heritage backgrounds and traditions of each child and family within the classroom community.    

One of the greatest resources teachers have is each other. Collaboration and sharing has proven to contribute to our success, development and growth.  Such growth can be stunted by isolation and holding onto inhibitors.  Growth depends on having the professional courage to believe and invest in yourself enough to breakthrough a comfort zone while learning newer and better ways of benefiting children as they learn and grow.  Until this happens, the students we care for and teach can only grow as far as we have grown ourselves.  We owe it to ourselves and our students to never stop growing.
