Helping teachers have a greater impact on the lives of their students every day

Take the Amazing Teacher Pledge

I am encouraging any teacher who wants to take a stand against teacher mediocrity to take the Amazing Teacher Pledge!

If you can make and keep the following 10 promises, I believe you will be that amazing teacher that your students need and deserve.

1. I promise to create amazing lesson plans.

2. I promise to keep learning.

3. I promise to communicate with parents. 

4. I promise to be my students’ source of praise.

5. I promise to not “lose it” in the classroom.

6. I promise to avoid negative teachers.

7. I promise to be in a good mood every day.

8. I promise to give students a fresh start every day.

9. I promise to not allow any student to fail my class.

10. I promise to adopt every student in my class.
