Quotes

“In the midst of winter, I found within me an invincible summer.”

–Albert Camus

“I’ve come to the frightening conclusion that I am the decisive element in the classroom.  It’s my daily mood that makes the weather.  As a teacher, I possess a tremendous power to make a child’s life miserable or joyous.  I can be a tool of torture or an instrument of inspiration.  I can humiliate or humor, hurt or heal.  In all situations, it is my response that decides whether a crisis will be escalated or de-escalated and a child humanized or de-humanized.”

–Dr. Haim Ginott

“In the course of a lifetime, what does it matter?”

Walk Two Moons, Sharon Creech

“Wake up every day with a dream, and happy ever after in your eyes.”

–“Happy Everafter in Your Eyes”, Ben Harper

‎”To every young person listening tonight who’s contemplating their career choice: If you want to make a difference in the life of our nation; if you want to make a difference in the life of a child — become a teacher. Your country needs you.”
–President Barack Obama, State of the Union Address, January 25, 2011
“Love: it will not betray, dismay, or enslave you. It will set you free.”
–“Sigh No More”, Mumford & Sons
