"Teachers teach more by what they are than by what they say." --Ralph Waldo Emerson
"Teaching kids to count is fine, but teaching them what counts is best.” --Unknown
"An understanding heart is everything in a teacher, and cannot be esteemed highly enough. One looks back with appreciation to the brilliant teachers, but with gratitude to those who touched our human feelings. The curriculum is so much necessary raw material, but warmth is the vital element for the growing plant and for the soul of the child."
