This paper explores Hmong perspectives on teaching in Minnesota. It includes published articles that report results from research conducted about the need for teachers of color, the successful teacher retention strategies, the needs and challenges of the Hmong community, and the barriers Hmong individuals face in pursuing education. This paper will shed light on the unique experiences of 11 Hmong teachers who continue to stay in the teaching field or who have left the teaching field and will add on to existing research of Hmong educators in the educational profession.
