Cultural Competency Training for Educators

Certified by the Minnesota Professional Educator Licensing and Standards Board (PELSB) to meet the MN requirements for re-licensure.

 

As our schools become more diverse, you’ll need to have the resources to make meaningful authentic connections.  

 

As per the National Education Association, "Cultural competence means understanding your own culture, other’s culture, and the role of culture in education. Using a student's culture as a basis for learning, communicating high expectations, and reshaping curriculum to reflect student’s diversity leads to better educational outcomes." 

 

Cultural Competency is the recipe for engagement and success.
