I often get asked, when should I teach about other cultures, and celebrations? My short answer is always. Why not? Your students deserve to be represented in their classrooms daily, they need to be used to seeing characters that look like them in books and in your classroom. It is important to celebrate individuals that made a difference in the world. I see you and know you are working hard daily, and just remember, The seeds you plant in your students today will grow so beautifully.
