I swear to fulfill to the best of my ability and judgment, this covenant…
Working as a lead learner, I will respect the artistry of democratic, holistic pedagogy as I respectively follow in the footsteps of committed past educators and as I advocate for equally committed current and future educators.
I will fully respect our young learners, fellow teachers, families, and community stakeholders; I will remember that we are members of an aspiring democratic society with special obligations and responsibilities.
Like John Dewey, I believe that our democratic, holistic pedagogy constitutes society’s supreme professional artistry because our virtuous practices set the ethical stage for all other vocations and professions.
I will continue my disciplined study towards a deeper understanding of democratic, holistic pedagogy, knowing that there is always more to learn and recognizing that my society and particularly my students deserve the best of my abilities to engage in—and to model—democratic practical wisdom.
I believe in the enduring importance of democratic general education, and I aim to promote the skills and virtues that are needed in all of our society’s vocations and professions: self-sufficiency, creative problem-solving, responsible independence, respectful empathy, civil relations, and informed judgments.
I will remember that I do not teach a lesson plan, nor a reading deficiency, but a human being, whose skills may affect that student’s future family and economic stability. My efforts will aim to teach the whole child, and help that child develop in mind and spirit. I believe that this is a basic democratic right for all children in our society, rich or poor.
If I do not violate this oath, may I enjoy my life and my professional artistry—respected while I live and remembered with affection thereafter. May I always act so as to preserve the finest traditions of my supreme calling, and may I long experience the joys of teaching those who seek my educational guidance and help.
