Creed of the Latino Educator

I believe in accepting each child with the enrichment brought from home, and in using the child's experiences, language and culture as vehicles for better instruction.
I believe in promoting brotherhood, in teaching all children to love their culture and to respect the culture of others.
I believe in developing in each child a positive self-concept.
I believe in including parents in all phases of the educational program.
I believe in continuing my education in order to continue learning with the children.
Therefore, I believe in the role of the Latino Educator and accept the challenge it offers me.
