Committed to Diversity  

Being committed to equity for diverse learners as an educator means prioritizing fairness, inclusivity, and justice in your teaching and creating an environment where all students, regardless of their background, whether or not they are a person with a disability,  have an equal opportunity to succeed. This commitment involves several key principles and actions such as recognizing and valuing diversity, building relationships with your students, inclusive teaching, and differentiated instruction. Recognizing and valuing diversity means that the educator means to learn about our students' backgrounds and cultures, abilities, and funds of knowledge to best support them in their learning journeys.  Building relationships with your students is key to being able to support the large variety of students that will be in your classroom. If they feel support they are going to want to learn. Differentiated instruction means looking at the students' different learning needs, being able to meet them, and giving them multiple pathways to reach their educational goals. 

To Learn About Them 

To get to know the students and to see what they like use. I had students create a name portrait. They wrote their names out in block letters and they draw things they like. This project helped me learn their name and who they are.

How to teach to everyone

Every student learns differently. As a diverse educator, finding a way that all students will understand the project we are doing at the time. Demonstrating the project and explaining what they are doing, help the visual learns. Having the steps borking down, step by step, and posted to be able to see the steps. This helps the students that needed every thing broken down and to be able to check things off the list.
