Complete the Mission
Knowing where precedes knowing how.
It’s tough to complete the mission if nobody in the school knows what it is. And people won’t know what the mission is if it isn’t emphasized, promoted and actively pursued.
This lesson will show you how Tom’s of Maine created a stellar model based on making every decision made by every person mission focused.
Teaching in a Christian school IS A MISSION.
There is one “mission” saying we must get over, however, because it’s a travesty in how it is used. Teacher salaries are usually way too low, yet how many times have you heard a board member or administrator say, “We would like to pay you more, but you understand that teaching in a Christian school is a mission.”
That is true, but it should also be the mission of the school board to pay faculty salaries that are “worthy of the workman,” and sufficiently high to eliminate the need for an energy-draining second job.
We will address that problem in a lesson called “Money Matters.”
For now, let your mind run freely and investigate ways your school can become one totally committed to complete the mission.
