Teacher Recites Her Own Mission Statement

I received this e-mail last month from a teacher in Lee County, FL…

My students have been reciting their mission statement daily after the pledge so I have been reciting my mission statement as well.  It seems to have an interesting effect on the students.  They really like hearing what I strive to do and they hear daily how much I really try to give them.

“To create a safe, creative environment with high expectations, positive relationships with students, staff and families.” 

Bob’s Comments:

This sounds like a great idea!  I do not know of many other teachers that do this.

  1. Do you have a personal Mission Statement?
  2. Do you recite it?
  3. What do you think of the practice of writing and reciting your personal mission?

Please share your thoughts…
