Sometimes, I find myself needing a little more motivation, as a person, a mother and as a teacher.

Often, I look to those little, but very wise, inspirational or thoughtful quotes, and they strike a chord, and I carry on.

Today, I have felt even more driven by the need to inspire in our students the desire and passion for learning. Sometimes, we need to sit back and think, or rethink, what we teach our children, but, more importantly, the way we teach our children.

So, here are a few of those little quotes that I stumbled upon today, and that I hope will keep afire the flame that should burn inside all us teachers.

Here they are:

Chinese Proverb  

Teachers open the door, but you must enter by yourself.

Eliphas Levi:

A good teacher must be able to put himself in the place of those who find learning hard.

Albert Einstein:

It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge

Martin Luther King, Jr.

The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus                                              character – that is the goal of true education.

Have a great and inspirational day 🙂
