Why is it important to connect to students' cultural heritages?

"I think you need to connect to students' cultural heritages most importantly to validate them. I think you need to let them know that their family and their traditions are important. I think you need to let other children know that differences are important, that they make our world. And I think it also helps educate for more tolerance to differences."
