    Executive Summary This paper proposes a  study designed to assess teacher ability to successfully interact with students from a variety of cultural backgrounds and the relation that skill has with student performance in reading comprehension.  The proposed study revolves around a ten question survey designed to assess teachers cultural skill in Cuban-American language and other cultural elements as well as the teachers educational approaches.  These questionnaires will be numerically quantified from zero to ten with the higher scores representing teachers with the highest level of cultural skill. These results will be analyzed in  relation to student reading comprehension scores. Introduction  The educational environment is replete with multicultural and multiracial issues and concerns. Addressing these concerns is a moral responsibility for all who teach. Multiple races and  multiple cultures in the educational environment demand teaching methods and administrative flexibility which address their unique needs. Teacher preparedness is the chief factor in effective learning in a multicultural  classroom. The hypothesis can be presented that: Teachers that are able to successfully interact  with students from a variety of cultural backgrounds are more effective teachers. The purpose of  this paper is to present research supporting this hypothesis. The Independent Variable for this research is: Teachers who are culturally skilled vs. Teachers who are not culturally skilled.
