Here are my favourite quotes of all time on education, some I made up and some I heard from others.
Be the change you wish to see in the world.
Model the behaviour you wish to view.
The true measure of a teacher is when he/she is no longer required.
Be the bridge between the knowledge and the child.
If you throw enough pebbles into enough ponds, you’ll surely make a wave.
Do not underestimate the power of failure.
Make conversation the currency in your classroom.
The greatest gift one can give a child is time, time to think.
A silent classroom is a failing one.
Independence is the precursor for all essential skills.
A great teacher understands when “not” to teach, but to observe.
It is never the child’s fault.
When we see unsavoury behaviour within a child, treat the need, not the symptoms.
Which is your favourite? ❤️
