OUR DIVERSE SCHOOL COMMUNITY
Our faculty is world-class, multilingual, and recognized. Drawing faculty from the Americas and the Navajo Nation, you will find a committed staff throughout our building and passionate educators in every classroom.
WE ARE LANGUAGE TEACHERS
At Puente de Hózhó, we believe in the power of language to build mutual understanding, stewardship, and leadership at home and around the world. Consequently, we are all language teachers. Language proficiency–and celebrating, sustaining, and revitalizing the fabric of culture embedded in language–is our ultimate goal.
DIVERSITY IS OUR FOUNDATION
We believe in the power of diversity in American pluralism and democracy, and we believe diversity is an academic asset for staff, students, families. and communities. Because Puente de Hózhó is predicated on the premise that diversity, inclusion, understanding, love, and mutual respect are inherently good, we are committed to explicitly teaching those values to our students. Consequently, we aim to affirm students’ cultural identity, explore other cultures and cultural issues, and develop a multicultural and pluralistic vision of the world.
