It is impossible to please God if you do not live on friendly terms with others.
Our job is to teach the students we have. Not the ones we would like to have. Not the ones we used to have. Those we have right now. All of them.
The way you behave should be a model to those you teach.
Jean-Baptiste de La Salle
Education is the key to unlocking the world, a passport to freedom.
Teacher Appreciation Week
If a doctor, lawyer, or dentist had 40 people in her or 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 she or he might have some conception of the classroom teacher’s job.

For a lot of people, Superman is and has always been America’s hero. He stands for what we believe is the best within us: limitless strength tempered by compassion, that can bear adversity and emerge stronger on the other side. He stands for what we all feel we would like to be able to stand for, when standing is hardest.
– J. Michael Straczynski
The best thing about being a teacher is that it matters. The hardest thing about being a teacher is that it matters every day.
You are never to old to set a new goal or to dream a new dream.
