Diversity
As an educator it is important to adapt to the surrounding
diversity. Creating a partnership with families of
culturally diverse learners is essential. With families of
different culture or social economic group we are more
concerned of the educational well being of their
children. It is important to interact with members of the
families for the education experience of the children.
Language can be a barrier when intending to
communicate. Using volunteer helpers to communicate
with family members in a language they understand can
be one of the first steps to incorporate proper
communication with diversity.
