A note from our Executive Director...
As we enter spring and turn our focus to the pillar of responsibility, I'm excited for us to get into our classrooms to empower our students to put their good character into action. The message of responsibility can have a uniquely impactful empowering force in a child's life. The child who learns today about the importance of responsibility is tomorrow's adult who can be trusted in the workplace, take responsibility for herself in personal matters, and who acts with integrity in all things.
Underscoring this point, according to an employer poll conducted by the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM), 97% of employers indicated that dependability and reliability were "very or extremely important." An unsurprising finding, to be sure, but one that underscores that the pillar of responsibility is pivotal to life success.
Our joint work is this month — and always — is to invest in the students we teach so that they can become productive adults who are well prepared for the future demands of the workforce. Character Coaches, thank you for your commitment to serving the students you teach.
