Final Reflection

After taking this class, I have learned a lot about diversity and how it relates to myself and my classroom. There were many aspects of privilege I was not aware that I had, and how this impacts me and my teaching. Although I do try to incorporate diversity into my classroom, it seems that there is always more I can be doing. I also realized that diversity does not have to just be about skin color, but it can also relate to gender and socioeconomic status as well and those are important aspects that I would like to work on incorporating into my classroom as well. I also got some great ideas on social justice lesson ideas from my classmates that would be incredibly beneficial to use in the classroom to help teach diversity. I believe that teaching students at an early age about diversity will make them more tolerant and accepting of those who are different from them. The sooner we have these discussions and teach these lessons, the better off our students will be in the future.

Thank you!
