World Taachers’ Day!…October 5th!

Today’s google doodle is a fine reminder that Monday merriment should include appreciation for teachers here there and everywhere, for without them, would be all be self-taught?, me thinks–NOT !!!

The task of the excellent teacher is to stimulate “apparently ordinary” people to unusual effort. The tough problem is not in identifying winners: it is in making winners out of ordinary people. ~K. Patricia Cross

I like a teacher who gives you something to take home to think about besides homework. ~Lily Tomlin as “Edith Ann”

A good teacher is like a candle – it consumes itself to light the way for others. ~Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, translated from Turkish

Good teaching is one-fourth preparation and three-fourths pure theatre. ~Gail Godwin

One looks back with appreciation to the brilliant teachers, but with gratitude to those who touched our human feelings. The curriculum is so much necessary raw material, but warmth is the vital element for the growing plant and for the soul of the child. ~Carl Jung

When all else fails, pray for a fire drill. ~Author Unknown

A teacher who is attempting to teach without inspiring the pupil with a desire to learn is hammering on cold iron. ~Horace Mann

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 Teacher
