Being a Culturally Responsive Educator: Starting with a Personal Approach
Carla Aguilar

The call for culturally responsive educators has risen in the last few years. Educators such as Zaretta Hammond (2014) and music educators such as Vicki Lind and Constance McKoy (2016) have championed this call. What does it mean to be a culturally responsive educator? Where can teachers start to understand the aspects of being culturally responsive? The core of being a culturally responsive educator begins with the teacher in the classroom understanding themselves. In this session, we will discuss four personal areas that educators can attend to in order to better understand themselves and how they approach teaching. These areas are privilege, intersectionality, implicit bias, and fragility. Using these areas, we will discuss ways to understand ourselves and how we can best approach teaching from a culturally responsive lens.
