EVERY STUDENT, EVERY DAY
More Than Just a Motto
If you have an opportunity to visit us at Glenwood City, it will become apparent that the motto, "Every Student, Every Day" is important. From the lanyards that hold our ID badges, to the staff polo shirts that were purchased during the 2014-2015 school year, to the wall in the superintendent's office, this phrase can be found throughout the district. Last year, staff members were asked to share their interpretation of this phrase; the following is the first of over twenty-five that will be shared with you over the course of the upcoming school year. I invite you to read my upcoming blog (found below) that will provide my views of this motto as well.
"Each and every [student] is a unique individual, possessing the potential to develop his/her strengths through a positive and engaging classroom experience. I believe it is my responsibility as an educator to help every [student] succeed within the educational setting. This success will foster confidence, self-motivation, citizenship, and open-mindedness, plus a sense of self-worth throughout their educational journey and into life beyond their K-12 years in school. For me, "Every [Student], Every Day" is not only a motto, but a belief that all students are worthy of our time, energy, attention and effort each and every day."
