1. Your personality is your most important tool.

2. Make your views come true.

3. Always respect people.

4. Recognize your own limitations.

5. Be consistent and reliable.

6. Develop a sensitivity to experience things from the point of view of whom you educate.

7. Be ready for self-criticism, yet without abandoning yourself.

8. Leave space for whom you educate – also for making mistakes.

9. Do not break the agreements and promises that you have made.

10. Cherish your inner freedom, which is your most precious capital.
