To build culture in a classroom the teacher needs to be reflective about their own culture and how it connects to the cultures of their students. Equity and recognizing differences and similarities in humans is fundamental to us learning. A culture of learning, high quality work, and character is essential to students becoming leaders of their own learning.
We carry our stories with us. They are weaved into the essence of who we are. The stories are there whether they are told or not. I am an advocate for telling them and appreciating them.
- The more we know about our students allows us a better perspective of our students to teach and reach them.
- Learning occurs from interactions with others no matter which culture they identify with or the role they occupy within the school.
