Age: 10 The Six Pillars of Character: Trustworthiness, Respect, Responsibility, Fairness, Caring, Citizenship



Maple Elementary School, Tulare City School District

Pillar: Fairness

"Someone who shines for the Pillar of Fairness is helpful, plays by the rules, and treats people fairly no matter what. When thinking of these qualities, I think of Emma. Watching Emma this school year, I have seen her help struggling classmates without being asked. I have seen her act as leader and guide her group in the right direction. Emma makes sure that students in our classroom are being treated fairly and she is not afraid to speak up when she feels something is not right. I am so proud to be Emma's teacher this year and I am excited to see what her future holds."
