Last week, I chatted with Kathryn Ryan, host of Radio New Zealand’s Nine to Noon (live!) about the importance of cultural proficiency in education, name pronunciation, and why teachers should understand their students’ backgrounds.

Thank you Kathryn, and thank you Radio New Zealand for having me, and for highlighting the importance of cultural proficiency!
