The road to success is always under construction.
Teaching should be full of ideas instead of stuffed with facts
Learning is finding out what you already know. ~ Richard Bach
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
The best inheritance a person can give to his children is a few minutes of his time each day. ~ O. A. Battista
If you don't know where you are going, you'll end up someplace else.
Shoot for the stars.
Even if you miss, you’ll land among the stars.
Honor your commitments with integrity.
Other people's opinion of you does not have to become your reality.
If you take responsibility for yourself you will develop a hunger to accomplish your dreams.
It is possible to store the mind with a million facts and still be entirely uneducated. ~Alec Bourne
A man should first direct himself in the way he should go.
Only then should he instruct others.
The essence of education is to help you discover your uniqueness,
Teach you how to develop it, and show you how to give it away.
You have to love your children unselfishly. That is hard. But it is the only way.
The job of an educator is to teach students to see the vitality in themselves.
Blessed are the hearts that can bend;
They shall never be broken.
A teacher is one who makes himself progressively unnecessary. Thomas Carruthers
Education is the soul of a society as it passes from one generation to another.
G. K. Chesterton
Tell me and I'll forget;
Show me and I may remember;
Involve me and I'll understand.

Education's purpose is to replace an empty mind with an open one. ~ Malcolm Forbes
Good teaching is one-fourth preparation and three-fourths theater.
Life is a great big canvas, and you should throw all the paint on it you can.
By learning you will teach; by teaching you will understand.
If you would thoroughly know anything,
Teach it to others.
It is the supreme art of the teacher
To awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge.
If a child can't learn the way we teach,
Maybe we should teach the way they learn.
Education's purpose is to replace an empty mind with an open one.
Anyone who stops learning is old, whether at twenty or eighty.
Anyone who keeps learning stays young.
I am not a teacher, but an awakener.~Robert Frost
Education is the ability to listen to almost anything without losing your temper. ~Robert Frost
You must be the change you wish to see in the world.

instead of teaching them to grow their own plants.

The only reason I always try to meet and know the parents better,
is because it helps me to forgive their children.
To teach is to learn twice. ~ Joseph Joubert
Knowledge rests not just upon truth, but upon error also.
The beautiful thing about learning is that no one can take it away from you.
A teacher who is attempting to teach without inspiring the pupil with a desire to learn
is hammering on cold iron.
Teachers should guide without dictating, and participate without dominating.
The best education in the world is that got by struggling to get a living.~ Wendell Phillips
Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up.
The beginning is the most important part of the work.
The mind is not a vessel to be filled, but a fire to be ignited.
A man should never be ashamed to own he has been wrong,
which is but saying in other words
that he is wiser today than he was yesterday.
No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.
We cannot always build the future for our youth,
but we can build our youth for the future.
Franklin D. Roosevelt
More important than the curriculum
Is the question of the methods of teaching
And the spirit in which the teaching is given.
A child educated only at school is an uneducated child.
While we try to teach our children all about life, our children teach us what life is all about.
The only way you can change someone,
Is to first change yourself.
There is one truth to the right, and one truth to the left,
The truest truth lies somewhere in the middle.
I cannot teach anybody anything, I can only make them think. ~ Socrates
Good teachers are costly, but bad teachers cost more.
The road to success is always under construction ~Lily Tomlin
When a teacher calls a boy by his entire name, it means trouble.
The best way to know life is to love many things.
Vincent Van Gogh
If a doctor, lawyer, or dentist had 40 people in his office at one time,
all of whom had different needs,
and some of whom didn't want to be there and were causing trouble,
and the doctor, lawyer, or dentist, without assistance,
had to treat them all with professional excellence for nine months,
then he might have some conception of the classroom teacher's job.
Donald D. Quinn
The mediocre teacher tells.
The good teacher explains.
The superior teacher demonstrates.
The great teacher inspires.

I put the relation of a fine teacher to a student
just below the relation of a mother to a son...
One good teacher in a lifetime may sometimes
change a delinquent into a solid citizen.
Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire. ~ W. B. Yeats
Education is bitter but the fruit is sweet. ~ Agustin Marissa
Imagination...is the elixir of life, the seed of greatness~ Melowpark College
The greater the obstacle, the more glory in overcoming it.
We think of the effective teachers we have had over the years with a sense of
recognition, but those who have touched our humanity
we remember with a deep sense of gratitude. ~ Anonymous
If you promise not to believe everything your child says happens at school,
I'll promise not to believe everything he says happens at home. ~ Anonymous
