Sensitivity Workshop brings cultural awareness
K iana Beaudin, Physician Assistant at the House of Wellness, provided Native American sensitivity training this week to more than 25 of the school district's instructional coaches and teacher leaders. One of the district's strategic plan pillars is to Maximize the Potential of all Learners and Educators. This workshop was one step toward helping to ensure that our educators do the best possible job of meeting the needs of our Native students by growing their cultural awareness.  

"Learning about the cultural norms was so interesting," said Sarah Roth. "And understanding the roles of different family figures gave me such insight."   

Susan Grogan added, "It was enlightening to understand differences between cultures regarding things like eye contact and mannerisms. It makes us better educators when we are aware of the cultural differences of the students in our classrooms."

The district hopes to be able to offer this training again to a wider audience in the future.
