Hmong Teachers: Life Experiences and Teaching Perspectives
Lor, Pao
Multicultural Education, v17 n3 p36-40 Spr 2010
There have been many areas researched relating to minority teachers and their teaching experience. For example, minority teacher recruitment, the status of minority teachers, the impact minority teachers have on student achievement, and how standardized testing impacts pre-service minority teacher retention and attrition have been studied. Alternative certification processes for minority teachers have also been examined. Additionally, life experiences of minority teachers and how their life experiences can impact student achievement and school climate have been considered as well. One of the emerging groups of ethnic minority teachers within the broader Asian and Pacific Islander category that has not been thoroughly looked at is the Hmong. In the last three decades, the number of Hmong teachers in the United States has steadily increased. An excellent example that reflects this change is the number of Hmong teachers currently practicing in the state of Wisconsin. This exploratory study looks at the life experiences and teaching practices of five Hmong teachers practicing in Wisconsin. (Contains 2 tables.)
