    "These students are entrusted to my care.  I will teach them to the best of my ability.  I will treat them with respect, dignity and fairness.  I will develop them into smartly disciplined, physically fit, thoughtful and self-motivated individuals ready to return to their campus and society as productive citizens, thoroughly indoctrinated in love of family and country, with integrity, self-esteem, self-confidence, and self-reliance.  I will demand of them, and demonstrate by my own example the highest standards of personal conduct, morality and professional skill."
