Share Your Culture
My name is Sheila Dokken, and I am the Equity Specialist in the Elk River School District at your child’s school. I work with several different elementary schools and am sending this to ALL families. If you are a parent with an international background, I would like to invite you to be a guest speaker in your child’s classroom and have you talk about your experience.

You can…
- show pictures (I can add them to the computer in advance)
- bring and show things from your country
- ready a short/easy book in another language
- teach a traditional song, dance, or game/activity
- answer questions
- other creative ideas relating to your culture

We can meet once before you come to school and talk about what we (the school) can do to help you feel comfortable and prepared for the classroom if you would like. This will be a 30-40 minute presentation and I will be there to assist you.

Please let me know of your interest as soon as possible so we can plan ahead. My contact information is if you would like to send an email in addition to this form. The kids love learning about different cultures and places around the world. Thanks for considering being a guest speaker!
