One of our most important jobs is to teach our students to work and live in a global economy. This means teaching them to respect people across all differences (race, culture, socio-economic status, gender identity, gender orientation, age, ability/disability, etc.).
- This is a broad and ever-expanding concept.
- The key is to listen and seek to understand and always consider the person first, then the difference.
- Don’t assume that you understand someone’s culture based on their race. Skin color does not always determine the culture with which a person identifies.
- People in the deaf community do not consider themselves to have a disability but rather a different language and culture. Keep this in mind when discussing their child’s needs.
