Quote This!


I love quotes. I collect quotes. I am
addicted to quotes. I have an entire file
cabinet that holds them, and I have moved
that cabinet to three different states over
the years. To ensure that the thousands of
wonderful, inspirational thoughts in this
cabinet do not eventually end up in the
recycling bin, I decided to share my very
favorite, most appropriate quotes with you.

[content block] I choose quotes carefully, then add them to memos, bulletin boards, paychecks... anywhere that I know they will be seen. I often wish that a certain quote had an illustration accompanying it that I could use in a presentation or to post in the lounge.

Here are a handful of my very favorites. Feel free to post them on the teacher's room wall, scribble them on the bathroom mirrors in the teacher's restroom, or use them in an upcoming newsletter:

"There is no word in the language I revere more than teacher. My heart sings when a kid refers to me as his teacher, and it always has. I've honored myself and the entire family of man by becoming a teacher."
~ Pat Conroy, from Prince of Tides

"Schools will change more in the next 30 years than they have since the invention of the printed book."
~ Peter Drucker

"Whoever first coined the phrase you're the wind beneath my wings most assuredly was reflecting on the sublime influence of a very special teacher."
~ Frank Trujillo

"He who dares to teach must never cease to learn."
~ Richard Henry Dann

"Education is the most important profession because through the hands of educators pass all professions."
~ Unknown

You can find hundreds more of my favorite quotes in my book, Quote This, published by Corwin Press.

Drive your staff happy!
