HEY teachers! Ask yourself...

Is your classroom

culturally considerate?

Take a look at the tips of things to do.

Be ready to transform your environment into something new and accepting.

Do you
welcome
all types
of
families?

Does it show
awareness of the
many cultures
represented within
the school
community?

Can you
admit
mistakes
and
change
policy if
needed?

Are you giving


voice and
consideration to
all students?

Are you
willing to
adapt
innovative
policies?

Are an advocate
for the respect
and reverence
of
individuality?

We cannot change our classroom


atmospheres in one day. We must be
intentional and put the work forward to make it
a more culturally considerate place to be.

Show your kids that theyre worth it.


Embrace the differences in your classroom!
