This lapel pin comes on a card with the following "I Believe In You" message:
These four simple words are among the most powerful you can say to a student, a parent, a colleague, or a friend. They let each recipient of this message know that you see something special in him or her--and that special something is worth believing in, worth supporting, worth encouraging. Indeed, these four words create a strong, invisible bond between you and the person to whom you are delivering the message. That bond is one that says, "That which I believe is the best of me identifies with and finds a commonality in that which you believe is the best in you. My strength is now your strength. Lean on it, use it, and grow with it. I am in your corner."
Wear this lapel pin on the first day you receive it, for it is my way of telling you that I believe in you. Then wear it only on those days that you can validate students, parents, and colleagues in the same way. I hope this means you will wear it often--for our students and parents and your colleagues and friends need this validation and support from you. Consider the climate we can build together in this learning community if we are truly willing to affirm our belief in others.
There will be no limit to what we can achieve.
