Hi everyone! Just wanted to let you know about my platform and why I am so supportive of Character Counts.
Character Counts began in 1992 by Michael Josephson in honor of his parents. It is a common language of core ethical values that works with your programs pre-existing curriculum. It teaches values known as the 6 pillars of character which are: trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring and citizenship. It helps kids make better choices in everyday life. Character Counts will change the lives of 7 million kids nationwide this year... How Amazing!
Being a sixth grade teacher, I have seen the changes these 6 pillars can have on a child and have witnessed the difference they have made in their lives. My hope is to reach as many people as possible and get them involved with their local Character Counts program and help change the lives of every child they meet.
"The good teacher explains, the superior teacher demonstrates and the great teacher inspires". We should all be great teachers and inspire all kids to show the 6 pillars of character in their life.
