Teachers of the World: HAPPY TEACHER APPRECIATION DAY 2014!
On behalf of all of us at Age of Learning, this Teacher Appreciation Day I want to send my sincere appreciation out to all teachers for their dedication and the vital role that they play in shaping the future of our children.
In honor of teachers this day, I would also like to share several of my favorite quotes about the value of teachers and the importance of teaching:
“It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge.” — Albert Einstein
“Education is not filling of a pail but the lighting of a fire.” — William Butler Yeats
“A teacher affects eternity; he can never tell where his influence stops.” — Henry Brooks Adams
“If you are planning for a year, sow rice; if you are planning for a decade, plant trees; if you are planning for a lifetime, teach the people.” — Chinese Proverb
“Every child deserves a champion – an adult who will never give up on them, who understands the power of connection and insists that they become the best that they can possibly be.” — Rita Pierson
“Education is not preparation for life; education is life itself.” — John Dewey
“What we learn with pleasure we never forget.” — Alfred Mercier
“A good teacher is like a candle — it consumes itself to light the way for others.” — Mustafa Kemal Atatürk
“Better than a thousand days of diligent study is one day with a great teacher.” — Japanese proverb
I offer the above with my deepest respect on this day of teacher appreciation.
