She told me that she felt shame.
As a student, Sonia often felt the school’s unspoken message was that she didn’t belong, or what was being taught was for other students and not her.
Sadly for many students today, even with the best of our intentions, this can still be a reality.
That’s why this interview is so important.
If you or your learning community wants all your students to feel connected, engaged, affirmed and fully included, regardless of their background, I have a real treat for you today.
Professor Sonia Nieto is a leader in areas of multicultural education, educational equity and teaching students of culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds.
In my interview with her today, you’ll discover:
- What it REALLY means to be inclusive.
- The key things you need to know about your students to help them feel included.
- Effective ways to affirm student diversity in your classroom.
- What she’d look for if she was in your classroom to see if it’s inclusive.
I’ve been inspired by Professor Nieto for nearly 20 years.
Her methods have made a huge impact on the lives of many students around the world.
I’m sure this interview will give you the tools to achieve the same for your students.
