In our classroom hangs the quote, “Integrity is doing the right thing, even when no one is watching.”
I try to teach my students that doing the right thing is an incredibly important thing. It will affect your friendships, your family and your future. Little choices that we make can have big consequences on ourselves and others.
I believe that if we focus more on teaching values and integrity then we would have to worry less about the academics and social aspect of our youth today. They would know, in their heart, that their work and the way they treat others is a direct reflection of who they are.
“Image is what people think we are. Integrity is what we really are.” – John C. Maxwell
