Mrs. Beverly Lapite's mission statement
I am an educator. I am passionate about supporting the growth and education of others – in whatever context that might be.
I believe in empowerment.
I will treat all people with the same respect regardless of race, gender, ability or disability.
In relationships with my coworkers, my supervisors, and my customers, I will strive to be humble, considerate, honest, kind, forgiving, and wise.
Each day I will say something kind to, and about someone else; thank those who have helped me, and do something kind for someone else.
I value and keep my word.
In everything I do, I will be guided by my values and shall give it my interest, my enthusiasm, my passion, and most importantly, myself.
I hold myself accountable and give myself credit.
I am part of a larger community – as such, I will strive, always, to encourage and support the dreams and aspirations of others, learn about others, and contribute to the betterment of my community.
A quote that describes my aspiration for myself as an educator:
The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates. The great teacher inspires.
