reflection- World Teachers Day

Just some little thoughts to share with colleagues today – World Teachers Day.  (……….from ACEL)

The dream begins with a teacher who believes in you, who tugs and pushes and leads you to the next plateau, sometimes poking you with a sharp stick called “truth.”  ~Dan Rather

In teaching you cannot see the fruit of a day’s work.  It is invisible and remains so, maybe for twenty years.  ~Jacques Barzun

Teaching is the profession that teaches all the other professions.  ~Author Unknown

A teacher is one who makes himself progressively unnecessary. ~Thomas Carruthers

A teacher affects eternity; he can never tell where his influence stops.  ~Henry Brooks Adams

A good teacher is like a candle – it consumes itself to light the way for others.  ~Author Unknown

What the teacher is, is more important than what he teaches.  ~Karl Menninger

A teacher is a compass that activates the magnets of curiosity, knowledge, and wisdom in the pupils.  ~Ever Garrison

Teachers who inspire know that teaching is like cultivating a garden, and those who would have nothing to do with thorns must never attempt to gather flowers.  ~Author Unknown
