    Lifelong Lessons from The Heart of a Teacher

    September 18, 2009 2068 Views

    HOAT_125x125It is the time of year when the days become shorter, the leaves start turning shades of yellow, red, and orange, and the air smells of bonfires at night. It also happens to be the time that children start heading back to school. I can remember the excitement the first few days of a new school year... new school supplies, new friends, and that feeling of being one grade higher and (hopefully!) a little wiser.

    I also looked forward to meeting those people that I would spend every day with for the rest of the year: my teachers. I can remember a few key teachers that truly shaped the way I see the world, and so that is exactly what I owe them... the world! To celebrate those very special people in our lives, we present Heart of a Teacher by Paula Fox. Here are some quotes from the book:

    "If a child can't learn the way we teach, maybe we should teach the way they learn." -Ignacio Estrada "To the loved, a word of affection is a morsel, but to the love-starved, a word of affection can be a feast." -Max Lucado "If you must raise your voice, do it to cheer your students on." -Author unknown "If kids come to us (educators/teachers) from strong, healthy, functioning families, it makes our job easier. If they do not come to us from strong, healthy, functioning families, it makes our job more important." -Barbara Color "More people fail for lack of encouragement, than for any other reason." -Ruth Bell Graham "A hundred years from now, it will not matter what my bank account was, the sort of house I lived in, or the car I drove. But the world may be different because I was important in the life of a child." -Forest E. Witcraft
