Building awareness of all the different cultures and diversity is an integral part of every classroom. A celebration that many recognize early in the school year is Hispanic Heritage Month. We celebrate the Latino culture from September 15th to October 15th. It is a great time to recognize the influential leaders and read books to help students and families understand the different cultures in America and the World.
During this month of celebration, many honors past influential leaders, and many visit museums or attend festivals; another enjoyable and meaningful tradition is trying food from these cultures. Understanding and bringing attention to this culture will be crucial to many of your students. I have always taught at diverse campuses and recognizing different cultures has always been part of the school and my classroom atmosphere.
