Each year, Americans celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month from September 15 to October 15 to recognize the contributions and influence of Hispanic and Latine Americans to the history, achievements, and culture of the United States. It is a time to amplify and learn from the diverse voices. As we end Hispanic Heritage Month, we wanted to provide our community and fellow educators with resources to continue learning throughout the year.
