As we begin the school year, I’d like to share some of my core educational beliefs with you. I introduced these values during the opening day session with all the staff.
I have one expectation for students–RESPECT. This is an acronym for the following:
Responsibility: for personal actions and proper language
Effort: give 100% and show grit when challenged
Sportsmanship: represent you team and school in a positive light
Pride: proud of the traditions of the school district
Excellence: strive and push yourself in all facets of school
Courtesy: address adults with Mr., Mrs., Miss, Coach, etc
Teamwork: collaborate with others to be successful
My one expectation of school personnel is PROFESSIONALISM. My definition of professionalism is to model RESPECT for our students. I believe if the staff is professional in developing healthy respectful relationships with students, we will have a very successful school year.
Teaching core values is a partnership between school and parents. Reinforcing the lessons of RESPECT at home will be very beneficial as we shape our future generation. Working TOGETHER we can make a difference everyday!
