Sunday Citar - Teachers
For "Sunday Citar", Fresh Mommy invites us to share interesting, insightful or funny quotes. Today I would like to spotlight the teaching profession with the following quotes.
Big hugs to my bloggy friends who are teachers :) Thanks to all the teachers who encourage creativity, critical thinking, inquisitiveness, compassion, cooperation, perseverance and kindness. I could go on and on, but I think I'll let these quotes continue the tribute.
He who opens a school door, closes a prison.
- Victor Hugo
One looks back with appreciation to the brilliant teachers, but with gratitude to those who touched our human feelings. The curriculum is so much necessary raw material, but warmth is the vital element for the growing plant and for the soul of the child. - Carl Jung
Education is not the filling of a pail but the lighting of a fire. - William Butler Yeats
Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn. - Benjamin Franklin
My Mom always talks about giving children the chance to "blossom". Dedicated and caring teachers are wonderful gardeners for the the spirit and the soul. They know how to give the careful and often tender attention necessary for a child's beauty to shine.
