Trustworthiness In School

vs. unreliability

Gaining the confidence of others by demonstrating reliability

To practice Trustworthiness, I will:

  • follow through on my commitments
  • complete all tasks to the best of my ability
  • keep confidences
  • tell the truth
  • anticipate the concerns of others

Trustworthiness: A Building Block of Friendship

If you look at the “I wills” for being trustworthy, you are looking at the definition of what would make a good friend. It’s about following through on promises, honoring secrets, telling the truth, and being your best and proactive. These are the activities that bond two people or a group together.

Teambuilding activities help to connect students to one another and may also give the teacher some insight into what motivates each student. Creating a community within the classroom and the school is a key bully prevention strategy. Teaching students to value one another and feel connected to each other will create a trustworthy environment where students will care for each other.

This month, focus on trustworthiness to build up relationships.
