The United States is increasingly diverse and this is nowhere more evident than in our public schools. Children who arrive as immigrants, as well as those born here to at least one immigrant parent, currently make up nearly one-quarter of all children in the United States.2 By the year 2025, it is estimated that one-third or more of the students in our nation’s schools will be children of immigrants.3 After providing a brief overview of the immigrant population in the United States, this chapter will describe both the unique challenges as well as the strengths that many immigrant children bring to the classroom, and how teachers can help support their resilience and academic success.
