A FEW LINES FOR TEACHER APPRECIATION DAY 2012

On this Teacher Appreciation Day 2012,  just as the old bumper sticker says, “If you can read this, thank a teacher”.  Here are a few quotes about the wonderfully underrated profession of teaching.

If a doctor, lawyer, or dentist had 40 people in his office at one time, all of whom had different needs, and some of whom didn’t want to be there and were causing trouble, and the doctor, lawyer, or dentist, without assistance, had to treat them all with professional excellence for nine months, then he might have some conception of the classroom teacher’s job.”  ~Donald Quinn

“A teacher affects eternity; he can never tell where his influence stops.”  ~Henry Adams

Presenting a little different perspective on this Teacher Appreciation Day, here are two quotes written by teachers.

“If you promise not to believe everything your child says happens at school, I’ll promise not to believe everything he says happens at home.”  ~Anonymous Teacher

“The only reason I always try to meet and know the parents better is because it helps me to forgive their children.”  ~Louis Johannot

THANK YOU TO TEACHERS EVERYWHERE!
