I'm embedded in the culture. I earned my bachelor's degree in Business Management. I am an ESL teacher and tutor and have taught African American courses to my students. In addition, I have 20 years of homeschool experience. During this time, I taught history and African American history for K-12 levels. We viewed presentations, wrote reports, created projects, and went on field trips. I have also taught African American history classes for local educational co-ops. During my years of teaching, I have given speeches and presentations on various cultural topics. In my classes, we will have light discussions where the students can share their thoughts and answer questions. The goal is to learn about the topic but also respect each other's views.

The life of Sojourner Truth does involve slavery which can be a sensitive topic. Some videos or images in regard to this may be shown in the class that may not be suitable for young students.
