We make sure to help each other (and our students) cultivate an appreciation for African American History Month. Everyone knows it should be more than just one month, but for some it could be the beginning to a journey of understanding, valuing, and integrating African American History into the curriculum, into their life.
It starts with awareness and appreciation for diversity. Then, it expands to include an understanding of cultures and their impact on education. Finally, it becomes part of what you do and who you are.
Your journey to embracing diversity and cultural awareness could start now, with a month dedicated to cultivating African American History…. It could be a gift… cultivate it!
