Quote: "Being a Native teacher affords me the opportunity to use our cultural knowledge to help students become self-confident, responsible and independent learners - learners who are excited about learning and who are confident in who they are, which leads to responsible community members. Native American Heritage Month is an opportunity for all educators to celebrate and promote a school environment that eliminates barriers for our children."
