GOOD TEACHING - At All Grade Levels

  • Enthusiasm – passion, energy, excitement for kids & learning
  • Caring – empathy, nurturing relationships, community spirit
  • Joy – celebrating the good, humor, laughter, story telling
  • Dedication – hard work & long hours helping kids develop

Good teaching is as much about passion as it is about reason … It’s about caring for your craft, having a passion for it, and conveying that passion to everyone, most importantly to your students.
– Professor Richard LeBlanc

GOOD CHARACTER - At All Age Levels

  • Healthy attitude – it's the control center of a healthy life
  • Kindness – how we treat others defines who we are
  • Work ethic – achievement in any field is the result of effort
  • Integrity – honesty builds trust and strong relationships

It is not education, accomplishments, material possessions, health, or significance. It is character that will sustain a child, an adult, a family.

– John and Susan Yates

Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all.
– Aristotle
