Presenter: Roxanna Pepper, Early Childhood Program Consultant
Children come for all walks of life that enter our classrooms. Your classroom is made up of families of different cultures, skin colors, abilities, and backgrounds. Family units look different from blended families to foster homes and everything in between. As early educators it is important to celebrate diversity throughout the year and to reinforce acceptance and appreciation of all cultural backgrounds in the classroom. Come be a part of this exciting professional learning community!
