Technology is just a tool. In terms of getting the kids working together and motivating them, the teacher is the most important.bill gates
You can get help from teachers, but you are going to have to learn a lot by yourself, sitting alone in a room.dr. seuss
Seek to delight, that they may mend mankind, And, while they captivate, inform the mind.william cowper
Our mothers are our first teachers, and we teach others the same lessons we learn from them. As a child, when your mother believes in you, you believe in yourself, and when that happens, there is nothing you can’t do. As a mother, that is the greatest gift we can give to a child.Caroline Kennedy
When students' language, culture and experience are ignored or excluded in classroom interactions, students are immediately starting from a disadvantage. Everything they have learned about life and the world up to this point is being dismissed as irrelevant to school learning; there are few points of connection to curriculum materials or instruction and so students are expected to learn in an experiential vacuum. Students' silence and nonparticipation under these conditions have frequently been interpreted as lack of academic ability or effort, and teachers’ interactions with students have reflected a pattern of low expectations which become self-fulfilling.jim cummins
If you be a lover of instruction, you will be well instructed.isocrates
An original thinker and able teacher very soon attracts a large class and vice versa.
Men must be taught as if you taught them not, And things unknown propos'd as things forgot.Alexander Pope
Teachers can change lives with just the right mix of chalk and challenges.Joyce Meyer
Who dares to teach must never cease to learn.
The whole art of teaching is only the art of awakening the natural curiosity of young minds for the purpose of satisfying it afterwards; and curiosity itself can be vivid and wholesome only in proportion as the mind is contented and happy.anatole france
Full well they laughed, with counterfeited glee, At all his jokes, for many a joke had he: Full well the busy whisper, circling round, Convey'd the dismal tidings when he frown'd.Oliver Goldsmith
Daily contact with some teachers is itself all-sided ethical education for the child without a spoken precept. Here, too, the real advantage of male over female teachers,especially for boys, is seen in their superior physical strength,which often, if highly estimated, gives real dignity and commands real respect, and especially in the unquestionably greater uniformity of their moods and their discipline.
We'll set thee to school to an ant, to teach thee there's no labouring i' the winter.william shakespeare
Schoolmasters will I keep within my house, Fit to instruct her youth. * * * * * * To cunning men I will be very kind, and liberal To mine own children in good bringing up.william shakespeare
I do present you with a man of mine, Cunning in music and the mathematics, To instruct her fully in those sciences.william shakespeare
To teach is to touch the heart and impel it to action.louis sullivan
The twig is so easily bended I have banished the rule and the rod: I have taught them the goodness of knowledge, They have taught me the goodness of God; My heart is the dungeon of darkness, Where I shut them for breaking a rule; My frown is sufficient correction; My love is the law of the school.
Grave is the Master's look; his forehead wears Thick rows of wrinkles, prints of worrying cares: Uneasy lies the heads of all that rule, His worst of all whose kingdom is a school. Supreme he sits; before the awful frown That binds his brows the boldest eye goes down; Not more submissive Israel heard and saw At Sinai's foot the Giver of the Law.Holmes, Sr., Oliver Wendell
Speak to the earth, and it shall teach thee.
The fundamental purpose of school is learning, not teaching.Richard DuFour
