December 2013: Compassion

Character Education winners for December 2013: Compassion


I believe fifth grade teacher Mrs. Debbie Miller is an excellent candidate for the  COMPASSION.

Mrs. Miller always greets her students with a smile on her face, and treats each one equally, regardless of socio-economic status or academic achievement.
I know Mrs. Miller goes out of her way to make all students feel important as individuals. She is always quick to give a hug or encouraging word to her students. They feel safe talking to her about issues they face at home and in school.
Mrs. Miller makes school a better place for many students, as well as the adults she works with.


When I even think of the word COMPASSION, Eli Meece comes to my mind. He is always concerned about his fellow classmates. He wonders if they are sick if one is absent.
When having class discussions about the less fortunate, as we did when talking about the food drive, I could hear the worry in Eli’s voice, his concern that there were people in our community that did not have enough money to buy food.

Eli truly cares about the feelings of others. He would never say anything that he thought would or could hurt another’s feelings.
So if you need someone to show you the real meaning of compassion, although he may not know the meaning, he certainly demonstrates it in his every waking minute!
