All educators have the responsibility to equip students with the proper tools to become life long learners, productive citizens, and thought leaders. Educators encourage students to always sense the potentialities they have within. The greatest gift an educator can give students is an opportunity for repeated independent academic success that will motivate them to become self-directed learners. Students must be confident that they can master the skills and strategies that will aid them, as they become contributors to their own learning, their community, the future of this nation, and the world.

In choosing to become an educator, we must be dedicated to meeting the educational and socio-emotional needs of the students we encounter, through our word and deed. The goal is to be the best academic, professional, and ethical role model possible. This includes developing a safe learning environment that is a place that greatly magnifies all students' capacity to explore and learn and all teachers' capacity to teach and inspire.
