To all the and old

So I was sitting up at school reading my teacher's calendar and saw all these quotes and decided to post them as a little encouragement to all my teachers as we start the new year! Hope you enjoy!

  • Enjoy the journey and do not worry so much about the end result of each day, each grading period, or each year. Teach the best you can and love each child the best you can. Ann Einstein

  • Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could; some blunders and absurdities have crept in;forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day;you shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense. Ralph Waldo Emerson

  • According to a worldwide survey of people learning English as a second language, the ten most beautiful English words are:mother, passion, smile, love, eternity, fantastic, destiny, freedom, liberty and tranquility.

  • Loving a child doesn't mean giving in to all his whims; to love him is to bring out the best in him, to teach him to love what is difficult. Nadia Boulanger

  • It's important that people should know what you stand for. It's equally important that they know what you won't stand for. Mary H. Waldrup

  • Appreciation can make a day, even change a life. Your willingness to put it into words is all that is necessary. Margaret Cousins

  • On days when I am out of sorts with colleagues and all I've come to, I know that when I enter the classroom, when I close the door and begin to talk and question, I have returned to one of the great solaces of my life. Jay Meek

  • Learning is never done without errors and defeat. Vladimir Lenin

  • You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance. Franklin P. Jones

  • Those teachers with the patience to stay true to the task, those teachers with the skill to bring order to the confusion, those teachers with a kind and understanding heart to see all children as capable and worthy, those teachers who teach special education children-these are truly the "saints of education". Harry and Rosemary Wong
