My Students

My students are eager to learn new concepts everyday. My students come from different cultures. They are students who are willing to learn and help each other when in need. My students are individuals who are learning two languages in the classroom. It is very important to be bilingual nowadays to have more opportunities in the real world. My students are bright, self-motivated, and great role models.

My students are eager to learn about the different cultures in the world.

By learning about different cultures and events that have occurred in the world it will help understand the importance of displaying respect for others.

My Project

In and out of the classroom it is very important to learn about different cultures. It is important that we teach our students from a young age to learn to accept everyone regardless of where they come from. Nowadays it is very easy to judge others because of their looks or actions. Teaching our students to accept everyone's culture will help create a better school environment.

With bullying in our schools, we should focus on the positive things that people contribute to our school environment and society.

Learning about different cultures will help my students have a better understanding of why it's important to respect everyone. We would love to read The Boy in the Striped Pajamas and Holocaust. This could be a very sensitive topic, but it is important that our students learn about it. By learning about this topic we could see how we are all the same, so we should be treated as such regardless of our cultural background. Respect is something that everyone should display towards other individuals.
