“You can easily judge the character of a man by how he treats those who can do nothing for him.” ― Simon Sinek
As public educators, we are in the business of service. First and foremost, we serve the students who walk through our doors each and every day. The best among us are able to keep our focus on children most of the time.
Of course, the work we do in service to children is how we make a living . . . our service is also our job. I feel incredibly blessed that my personal mission is in alignment with the work I get to every day.
We see the character of those in public education whose first priority is on the students. We also see the character of those whose primary focus is on the adults – or on themselves.
Be a servant educator . . . let others see your character by how your treat the children in your care, not on how you focus on the adults.
