Ralph Waldo Emerson
In the end
That is the difference between good teachers and great teachers: good teachers make the best of a pupil's means; great teachers foresee a pupil's ends.
Information cannot replace education.
We all need someone who inspires us to do better than we know how.
Instruction begins when you, the teacher, learn from the learner; put yourself in his place so that you may understand what he learns and the way he understands it.
The kids in our classroom are infinitely more significant than the subject matter we teach.
Learn to think
It must be remembered that the purpose of education is not to fill the minds of students with facts... it is to teach them to think, if that is possible, and always to think for themselves.
Every student can learn, just not on the same day, or the same way.
You can teach a student a lesson for a day; but if you can teach him to learn by creating curiosity, he will continue the learning process as long as he lives.
