Read Full Article Here:

As hate crimes against Asians in America continue to rise, we as educators need to stop and consider the Asian students we have sitting in the desks in front of us.

Many of my students are recent immigrants and refugees who have some experiences that differ from U.S.-born Asian Americans.

So I asked my Asian and Asian American students, “What do you want your teachers to know?”Let’s listen to their authentic responses:Mary T. said: “I want teachers to know that Asians are a diverse population and are not a monolith.

said: “I want teachers to know that most immigrants are civic minded people who want to contribute to America’s democracy.

We love our families and are grateful for our teachers.”As I consider the profound wisdom of my students, I consider how I can implement their suggestions.
