This school year, we are implementing Stephen Covey’s 7 Habits as part of a school-wide Community of Kindness initiative. Our younger students will be creating classroom mission statements and our older students will be writing personal mission statements. As an exercise, all faculty were asked to write their professional mission statements. Here is mine:
My Mission as an Educator
My core mission is to provide a nurturing, safe, and stimulating environment for exploration of the information universe. I strive to instill in my students habits of lifelong reading, thinking, and learning, while developing ambition, curiosity and personal excellence. I aim to assist teachers and students in developing the competencies necessary for accessing and evaluating information from diverse sources. Above all, I seek to empower all learners to the best of my ability.
