Cultural Responsibility in Instruction

A culturally responsive educator has to be someone who knows themselves. To know thy self is power! Know your culture, your background and information about yourself before you begin to learn from and teach others. This person is also one who is able to identify, acknowledge and accept cultural differences, similarities, and characteristics that can be used as extension knowledge for the educator. They value diversity in culture and opinion, and what it brings to the table. To be able to be a great culturally responsive instructor, I need to be able to not only know my biases, but figure out their roots and tackle them. A biased teacher is not a good teacher. Through interaction with students and peers, the instructor should be able to learn and “take away” things that are important in understanding who they are dealing with.
