Never seem more learned than the people you are with. Wear your learning like a pocket watch and keep it hidden. Do not pull it out to count the hours, but give the time when you are asked.
– Lord Chesterfield
The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher strates. The great teacher inspires.
-William Arthur Ward
We ourselves feel that what we are doing is just a drop in the ocean, but the ocean would be less because of that missing drop. We can do no great things, only small things with great love.
Study as if you were going to live forever; live as if you were going to die tomorrow.
Never forget that the purpose for which a man lives is the improvement of the man himself, so that he may go out of this world having, in his great sphere or his small one, done some little good for his fellow creatures and labored a little to diminish the sin and sorrow that are in the world.
– William E. Gladstone
Teachers must be encouraged – I almost said ‘freed’, to pursue an education that strives for depth of understanding.
– Howard Gardner
We must give more attention to the interplay between the science of teaching – pedagogy – and the art of teaching… A teacher must be anchored in pedagogy and blend imagination, creativity and inspiration into the teaching learning process to ignite a passion for learning in student.
– Peyton Williams
School improvement is most surely and thoroughly achieved when teachers engage in frequent, continuous and increasingly concrete talk about teaching practices… capable of distinguishing one practice and it’s virtue from another
– Judith Warren Little
