product description

As most of you know, we love quotations. That’s why Inspirational Quotes for Teachers is so special to us. It’s also made special by the two people who compiled these quotes for teachers—John and Linda Podojil.

In elementary school, John was hard of hearing and failed the first grade because only he knew he could not hear. He read people’s lips to try and learn, but could not when they turned away from him. John was diagnosed with an 80 percent hearing loss and underwent an operation to restore his hearing. He was a high school dropout, but some special teachers were able to ignite his love of learning…so much so that he eventually received a GED and an associate’s degree.

John went on to teach technical education at the University of California, San Diego; California State University, Dominguez Hills; and the College of Southern Nevada. He has presented at both Cornell University and Stanford, educated over three thousand technical education instructors on safety in technical skills classrooms, and is an advocate for technical education.

John says his greatest teacher of all times is his wife, Linda.

Linda also was a teacher. Before retiring from the Boeing Company as full-time safety administrator at Boeing Portland and also in Seattle, Linda was a part-time safety instructor for South Seattle Community College, where she taught occupational safety and health-related subjects. John and Linda know that teachers who believe they can make a difference do make a difference.

Here’s a small sampling of the 130 great quotes including in this book:

“I touch the future. I teach.” ~ Christa McAuliffe

“The greatest gift that you can give to another is knowledge, for knowledge is power—power to build and to dream. What you can envision in your mind, you can achieve.” ~ Jack Podojil

“Good teachers know how to bring out the best in students.” ~ Charles Kuralt

“Most of us end up with no more than five or six people who remember us. Teachers have thousands of people who remember them for the rest of their lives.” ~ Andy Rooney

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

“A child miseducated is a child lost.” ~ John F. Kennedy

“If your plan is for one year, plant rice. If your plan is for ten years, plant trees. If your plan is for one hundred years, educate children.” ~ Confucius

“Good teachers are costly. Bad teachers cost more.” ~ Bob Talbert

“I’m not a teacher, but an awakener.” ~ Robert Frost

“Nine-tenths of education is encouragement.” ~ Anatole France

We hope that you enjoy Inspirational Quotes for Teachers and that, in a small way, it helps to recognize those special teachers who are changing the world, one generation at a time.
