Let's all teach with integrity

Friday , August 22, 2014 - 2:55 PM



School has already started for some of our beloved children. Some are scared and unsure of their transitions, whether to a new grade or a new school.

Our children are there to learn their academics as well as our Golden Rule. It is our responsibility to do all we can to help and support them, of course, as parents and grandparents. Yet, schools are where our children are supposed to be taught and learn what is needed to graduate.

Yet, between a lot of bullying and peer pressure, too many adults and teachers are not practicing the Golden Rule. It seems like lately more bad teachers are in the news. Our children are our future. let’s all teach with integrity and today’s kids will grow up as responsible adults.
