Educational Responsibility and Vision

August 19, 2012

As I walk the halls and listen to all the conversations that the adults are having with our students, it reminds me of the great responsibility we have as educators. We as educators, have an enormous opportunity to give the gift of learning.

Teaching the children of this community is a gift. It is our responsibility as educators to help them grow and succeed. We all know that what we give them inside the classroom extends so much further.

It is our duty to serve as role models and leaders. But more than that, it is our responsibility to make a positive and lasting difference in the life of our students.

This year, our vision at Lincoln Junior High centers around “TEAM LINCOLN”. Let’s create a vision for ourselves as educators, for our classrooms, and for every individual student we come into contact with within our school walls. By taking small steps, we can dramatically enhance a student’s learning experience. When we do this, we will be doing all that we can to make a positive difference in the life of our students. I urge all of you to take action. Today, let’s take the small steps needed to make our school and our community an even better place to learn, to work, and to thrive.


Vision without action is merely a dream. Action without vision just passes the time. Vision with action can change the world.”
