What is a Teacher?

A teacher's purpose is not to create students in his own image, but to develop students who can create their own image.

The best teachers teach from the heart, not from the book.

A good teacher is like a candle - it consumes itself to light the way for others.

Teachers who inspire know that teaching is like cultivating a garden and those who would have nothing to do with thorns must never attempt to gather flowers.

Teachers touch hearts and change lives without lifting a finger. They simply inspire young minds – making them a better somebody someday.

Teachers who inspire realize there will always be rocks in the road ahead of us. They will be stumbling blocks or stepping stones; it all depends on how we use them.

To teach is to touch lives forever.

Teaching is the profession that teaches all the other professions.

Teaching should be full of ideas instead of stuffed with facts.

Well, if you can read this, thank your teachers.

Teachers always have a soft spot in my heart. I was once a teacher. I can relate to all you posts. I'll be back for more read. Thank you.
