Becoming Multicultural Educators offers teachers no matter what subject they teach or their level of expertise a unique resource for learning to become teachers who can work with students from a variety of ethnic, cultural, and social backgrounds. Through the lens of fourteen stories from teachers from different regions, cultures, and stages in life, this book reveals their unique challenges to grow personally as a requisite of multicultural teaching. These wonderful stories will inspire teachers to become more reflective and critically conscious about their own multicultural beliefs, experiences, and behaviors, and to develop their own personal and professional competence and confidence in multicultural education.
