Content: Quote Garden compiles famous and inspirational quotes and categorizes them according to specific themes such as teaching.
Design: The site is certainly old-school, but for its intended purpose, that really doesn’t matter. Although the colors are drab and the fonts are a bit grating, users aren’t expected to be spending a lot of time here. This is a “quick hit” site, so Quote Garden’s design, while not optimal, gets a pass.
Review: Teachers in need of a quick pick-me-up or inspirational line can log on, get what they need and get back to work.
Plenty of quotes touch upon many of the different aspects of teaching. No matter the source of your current troubles, there is sure to be a line here to put it all into perspective. Whether you’re battling administration, parents, students, or even yourself, Quote Garden will offer a quick piece of advice to help you put it behind you and focus on why you become a teacher in the first place.
Bottom Line: While not a classroom resource or even an everyday site, Quote Garden certainly has its place as a source of motivation and inspiration for teachers.
