There is no real teacher who in practice does not believe in the existence of the soul, or in a magic that acts on it through speech.

Allan Bloom

One good teacher in a lifetime may sometimes change a delinquent into a solid citizen.

Philip Wylie

That is the difference between good teachers and great teachers: good teachers make the best of a pupil's means; great teachers foresee a pupil's ends.

Maria Callas

In one century we went from teaching Latin and Greek in high school to offering remedial English in college.

Joseph Sobran

A teacher enlarges people in all sorts of ways besides just his subject matter.

Wallace Stegner

A loving, caring teacher took a liking to me. She noticed the potential and wanted to help shape it.

Tom Bradley

I am sure it is one's duty as a teacher to try to show boys that no opinions, no tastes, no emotions are worth much unless they are one's own. I suffered acutely as a boy from the lack of being shown this.

Arthur Christopher Benson

Teachers are expected to reach unattainable goals with inadequate tools. The miracle is that at times they accomplish this impossible task.

Dr. Haim Ginott

There are many teachers who could ruin you. Before you know it you could be a pale copy of this teacher or that teacher. You have to evolve on your own.

Berenice Abbott

The bad teacher imposes his ideas and his methods on his pupils, and such originality as they may have is lost in the second-rate art of imitation.

Stephen Neill

Benevolence alone will not make a teacher, nor will learning alone do it. The gift of teaching is a peculiar talent, and implies a need and a craving in the teacher himself.

John Jay Chapman

A teacher must believe in the value and interest of his subject as a doctor believes in health.

Gilbert Highet

Politics, where fat, bald, disagreeable men, unable to be candidates themselves, teach a president how to act on a public stage.

Jimmy Breslin

It is just as important, perhaps more important, for the teacher to have the benefit of personal counseling when he needs it as it is for the student.

Dr. William Menninger

Teaching was the hardest work I had ever done, and it remains the hardest work I have done to date.

Ann Richards

There is one thing a professor can be absolutely certain of: almost every student entering the university believes, or says he believes, that truth is relative.

Allan Bloom

You don't have to teach people how to be human. You have to teach them how to stop being inhuman.

Eldridge Cleaver

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 feeling. 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.

Carl Jung

Children today are tyrants. They contradict their parents, gobble their food, and tyrannize their teachers.


There are two kinds of teachers: the kind that fill you with so much quail shot that you can't move, and the kind that just gives you a little prod behind and you jump to the skies.

Robert Frost

In a rational society we would want our presidents to be teachers. In our actual society we insist they be cheerleaders.

Steve Allen

Teachers open the door. You enter by yourself.

Chinese Proverb

My education was dismal. I went to a series of schools for mentally disturbed teachers.

Woody Allen

This might give teachers some things they might like. But fortunately, our members look beyond their own self-interest and see the damage this would inflict.

Charles Hasse

Things do go wrong, ... We had sent all these books to Nepal, but then we did an evaluation with local teachers.

John Wooden

With their current offer the board is given the option of protecting themselves by rehiring every three years to avoid firing. We also want to protect experienced teachers.

Tim Marchant

We do this for coaches, teachers and all kinds of groups.

Tina Barnard

We have also expanded our selection of office accessory supplies and products for teachers, many of whom spend a lot of money purchasing school supplies for their classrooms.

Gary Rhodes

Teachers are selfless, creative, warm people.

Alice Carter

It's definitely going to be a challenge. I'm going to miss my family, friends ... the west coast. The community in general. The coaches, teachers, family, they make it home for me. Moving away from all these people, I'm going to miss that a lot. But I'm going to broaden my horizons, it's going to be good for me.

Myles Butler

I have learnt silence from the talkative, toleration from the intolerant, and kindness from the unkind; yet strange, I am ungrateful to these teachers.

Kahlil Gibran

We're trying to provide a complete service, from teachers to social workers.

Mary Loehnis

India has very good teachers, especially in math and science. Also, these subjects are culture-free so it is comparatively easy for Indian teachers to teach them. Online tutoring is an area which shows enormous potential for growth.

Kiran Karnik

Instruction does not prevent wasted time or mistakes; and mistakes themselves are often the best teachers of all.

James Anthony Froude

There is that pressure from the administrators who ask the teachers 'Why is [only] 40 percent of your class passing?' because they are under the gun, too. The blame game is what drains teachers because they are pedaling and not getting anywhere. There are all sorts of fingers pointing at you, then you eventually get a burned-out teacher and they will pass the students so they don't get ragged on.

Carol Clarke

At the elementary level, we found that teachers with two years of experience, but no CLAD credential, were just as effective as those with that credential.

Julian Betts

The feedback from the teachers is that they understand the repairs are needed. It's a little harder to explain to the students. They don't want excuses. They want to know when we're going to reopen.

Larry Spasic

Attacks on the teachers will not stop unless the government dissociates itself from the perpetrators of the crime.

Prof Aams Arefin Siddique

Many new teachers that we hire are actually ready to earn permanent status after their second year. Taking away from us the ability to award tenure to the best and brightest that we hire actually hurts us in recruiting highly qualified teaching staff.

Bob Wells

Teachers are feeling extremely let down. Teachers are saying I don't want to quit, but I can't afford to stay. It's a brain drain you cannot replace.

Scott Berryessa

Knowing this could happen, our board actually negotiated two years with our teachers.

Aaron Parks

Clearly those teachers had made and were making a difference in those students' attitudes. What could other teachers learn?

Steve Calloway

We are a people enterprise and rising housing costs have undermined our ability to attract qualified teachers to our area.

Hugh Futrell

This investment is a win-win. Teachers' salaries are increased, student achievement is improved and the taxpayer gets a good deal.

Glenna Fletcher

It's a long testing week. ... The individual teachers try to plan things that are not as stressful so the time when they are not doing tests is more relaxed in the classroom.

Linda Stephenson

The CISD Transportation Department promptly responded to the situation and had buses available immediately to transport students, along with their teachers, to Alice Johnson Junior High. AJJH and Harvey Brown staff organized tables to greet parents and have them sign out their children.

Stephanie Schraeder

I'd love to see teachers from the Joliet area apply.

Joanne Wheeler

There's grades for five categories, including speaking skills, organization, etc., that students can grade their teachers on, and there's a survey you can take, and then you can also post comments.

Brett Wolfington

No. 1 is dealing with their teachers; they feel like say a teacher is wrong - no one wants to believe them or that the teacher is always right. We teach them that the teacher might not always be right, but that isn't a battle that you can win by getting up and acting out in class.

Kareem Evans

It validates what a lot of people know ... their own gut feelings. Teachers are researchers on the ground.

Sarah Miles

We are losing great teachers we are losing people that can help us get to the goal everybody's trying to reach.

Melony Smith

We want to enrich the experience students have at the high school and forge stronger connections between students, teachers and parents.

Jay Petrek

The mother eagle teachers her little ones to fly by making their nest so uncomfortable that they are forced to leave it and commit themselves to the unknown world of air outside. An just so does our God to us.

Hannah Whitall Smith

We were looking for great teachers - teachers with great enthusiasm who have a passion to coach. Then, we needed some wisdom, as well. I think we got all of those things with the combination of the three guys we hired.

Mark Farley

A lot of the districts aren't going to have money to pay their teachers come July if they don't do something.

Clayton Downing

The young men who participated in this generous act of support show their maturity, compassion and camaraderie for a teammate and friend. Their parents, coaches, teachers and community can be proud of all of them. I know I am.

Gary Henderson

It's really unfair to our young teachers and discouraging them from entering the profession, particularly in the most challenging teaching environments where they're most needed.

Barry Wilson

I have a whole stack of them I have 70 or so in my hand. We have great kids and great teachers who recognize these kids.

Joseph Moore

When you have teachers being beheaded and schools being closed in parts of the country, when you have suicide bombers killing Afghan civilians and Canadian diplomats, that is a very disturbing trend.

Richard Norland

That profile is more common than not. There is a shortage of teachers of color and particularly African-American males at the elementary-school level.

Leroy Jones

A big chunk of those are teachers we put in high-poverty schools to increase the teacher-to-student ratio.

John Mackenzie

Some schools are looking at literacy coaches. Other schools are teaching reading strategy to teachers. High schools don't teach the skill of reading.

Alexa Posny

The students and the teachers are all shaken up. In my 20 years at the school, it is the first time that I have ever witnessed something like this.

Agnes Tennant

Bumping is really demoralizing for our teachers. If we lose all this ... student achievement will go down.

Candace Millington

The students and teachers didn't even know about it.

Jason Messer

In general, I tend to favor teachers over school boards in conflicts. Not that teachers are always right (I refer specifically to Mr. Manley in the fifth grade at Hamilton Elementary), but school boards are often used by the politically ambitious as a step up the ladder. The politically ambitious rarely become kindergarten teachers.

Jon Carroll

Every class is a little bit different. Some classes are relying primarily on a service, where you need a password to get to it. Some classes' teachers are using electronic text books as a resource - not as a primary tool but as a resource and then a lot of our classes are relying very heavily on simply free material that is available on the internet.

Calvin Baker

They (teachers) have to know, making your classroom public, that's not going to be a negative experience.

Keith Morris

We've found that harassers tend to be white collar, don't have a criminal records, are not Internet experts or hackers, and are just like you and me. They can be teachers, lawyers, businesspeople, students, doctors, the kid who bags your groceries - online harassers and stalkers are not who you may think they are.

Jayne Hitchcock

It doesn't look like you need physical education teachers to be highly qualified. Or health or home economics.

Nate Mackinnon

She screamed so loud that she scared the other teachers.

Robert Boyd

Everyone agrees that tens of millions of Americans consume porn. ... ministers, PTA members, policemen, teachers, soldiers, dentists and Boy Scout leaders. The overwhelming majority of them don't rape strangers or emotionally abandon their wives.

Marty Klein

It's like 'What's an atom? What's an element?' ... Teachers feel like we need to hit the basics before we move on to something like the periodic table.

Charles Edwards

My teachers treated me as a diamond in the rough, someone who needed smoothing.

Mother Jones

It was just seeing how competitive I actually was in academics when I got to high school. Mrs. Moody and Mrs. Trevino have been my math teachers. They really expanded my like for that subject.

Kara Samsel

It's important for the schools to make sure they new hires are of the quality they want. It's one more thing we can do to make parents feel safe leaving their children with these teachers.

Daniel Wallace

We are giving the government a very strong reason to sit down with the teachers and solve this dispute.

Jim Sinclair

Most of our teachers were white, and the songs that they taught us were white, so when we first started out singing, it was really more of a glee club.

Clarence Fountain

To perhaps confirm the teacher?s knowledge of that child?s learning already., so that, yes, we are going to work more on his numbers sense. We are going to work more on their grammar.

Mary Tiede Wilhelmus

I think I eventually want to teach first or second grade. I've always liked little kids, and it's been easy for me to relate to them. I don't think I'd want to teach middle or high school. I remember how I was then, and it doesn't seem like the older kids give young teachers much respect.

Lisa Richardson

You protect that because it pays folks' salaries that we're depending on -- music teachers, librarians. Yeah, there are needs at the site level. But let's not lose sight of this other thing we have going and make sure we're all in it together.

Malcolm Sharp

It's stuff they've done since the school year began. It shows what the students have been doing and what the teachers have been doing.

Tina Lutz

Someone like that brings history alive. You wish you had teachers like that in school. I learned a lot.

Susan Long

All teachers, district employees and parents and people working with children are invited and encouraged to attend.

Donna Bassi

Our teachers really cooperate with each other, and if somebody is absent and we don't have a sub, they're great about covering for each other.

Teri Mowery

There are better ways of doing things than to just implement it on us. It hurt a lot of teachers that we couldn't compromise. For every one bad teacher you get several good ones. We don't want the collective bargaining changed for one bad teacher.

Tim Marchant

The way Greenville is beating our pants off is not with their 2 and 3 percent higher salaries. They are offering new teachers a brand new classroom, while we are offering that new teacher a broken-down portable. Now where would you choose to teach?

Alex Saitta

Through the 'Grow A School Garden' program, we're giving children a chance to spend time outdoors, learn about where food comes from and how to care for the environment while getting physically active. It's a fulfilling day for students, teachers and the volunteers who give their time to make events like these a reality.

Charlie Nardozzi

The way they hire people as coaches first, teachers second... that alone kind of shows you the difference, the value they place on football.

Chuck Heater

I'm a little nervous, ... I've heard no matter how hard you study you fail, and the teachers are pretty unforgiving. I'm glad of the challenge.

James Morrison

The difference is Hernando County being able to be competitive in recruiting good teachers and retaining the great teachers that we have here, so it's important that we're on an equal playing field. That's really what the school board is looking to do.

Roy Gordon

The better the individual teachers are with the computers, the more they will use them in the classroom...and the more the kids will learn.

Kathleen Gair

But there?s nothing to prevent a board from appointing a teacher or anyone else in an advisory capacity. We do know of districts that have student representatives, but we don?t know of any cases of teachers who have actually been appointed to such positions.

Brent Ghan

That's a management and organization dilemma for many teachers. Even me as a seasoned teacher, I love to have a second person in here when we are doing the hands-on (activities).

Connie Collins

We're teachers, professionals, and we're going to do our jobs regardless.

Jane Green

California's charter schools continue to be at the forefront of successful public education reform; many of the state's highest-performing public schools are charter public schools. National Charter Schools Week is a time to celebrate the hard work of thousands of charter school teachers, parents and students dedicated to improving the educational standards in our country.

Caprice Young

A lot of classes and teachers have made it a friendly competition.

Patricia Adams

Government officials should also be cautious about their comments or remarks to avoid hurting teachers' feelings.

Alan Wong

If they (staff) don't get good preparation, the kids and the teachers suffer. No one puts as much time, effort and money into it (training) as we do.

Dirk Matson

It takes a lot of planning. It involves teachers, staff, parents, students, alumni and a lot of business who donate a lot of services.

Lisa Taylor

This program takes away teachers' creativity to respond to the different needs and talents of our children with one-size-fits-all testing in reading, math and science.

Carlotta Harrell

When teachers get together they can trade ideas, blow off steam and generally get better connected with the school. As a result, students get better, more enthusiastic teachers.

Dean Turner

They're superb. That's really a tribute to the parents and teachers.

Wanda Bethea

We want our teachers to get a grass-roots effort. And we have a great relationship with hotels in Las Vegas.

Jennifer Sherron

The trend is positive, ... Four more points this year and 55 points over the last five years, which is remarkable, a testament to our teachers and students. When you look at a five-year period, you see the difference that is being made.

John Phillips

He taught us with his actions as well as his words -- he taught the power of nonviolence for human dignity. He was a humble man from ordinary beginnings who became a great man and a hero and one of our greatest teachers.

Walt Blomberg

We're just very proud. It just shows her commitment and dedication to quality early-childhood care and proves there are quality early-childhood teachers that live or work in this community.

Stephanie Phillips

We still have areas with growth, so if we have surplus teachers we could send them there.

Jane Turner

They don't find teachers who believe in them. They get convinced they are stupid.

Good Will Hunting

Teachers have enough problems as it is. It's sure not positive.

Bob Hazel

The College Board's recognition of four of our AP programs is a compliment to Keystone School's overall approach to education. We put motivated, capable students in small classes with dedicated, experienced teachers in a homey, safe atmosphere.

Hugh Mcintosh

Administrators have said they want to increase services for students — not hire more faculty. But having qualified, full-time teachers in the classroom is a service — it's the very heart of our education system.

Jesse Greener

But it is more than just the teachers who create a good learning environment for the students. It's the bus drivers and cooks and janitors and teaching assistants and secretaries.

John Brennan

He's asked questions in the past and helped teachers to develop Web pages. He seemed to be pretty helpful.

George Worthington

Teachers said they were able to open up whole new discussions just by doing this project.

Kari Lyles

There's an old adage. Parents shouldn't be friends to their children and neither should teachers. As soon as that happens, the relationship is not what it's supposed to be. Anyone who suspects a teacher is too friendly should investigate that.

Deborah Gust

If we're going to attract and retain teachers, they have to know that retirement benefits will happen. It's time to solve this problem.

Rosemary Coyle

We always have Latin teachers calling about it, but we can't draw any conclusions.

Caren Scoropanos

Teachers play such an important role in our society, especially in New York. They work very hard and are dedicated and we place a lot of trust in them in helping us guide our children's future. Hopefully the new contract will allow them to keep doing the job that they do. It's about time.

Paul Gallo

High quality teachers are certainly the key to student achievement.

Sen. Evelyn Lynn

The teachers of this province are not going to be broken.

Jinny Sims

These are the schools that are getting it done. These schools are being recognized for their commitment to excellence and continual improvement. Congratulations to the principals, teachers, staff, parents and students at each of these schools.

Kathy Cox

He's one of those inspired writers ... but he has a warmth that is appealing to teachers.

Lynn Stewart

Both of them have a long history of success, and they're both great people. That's why I feel kind of good about it. Even though we're losing kids to them, I know they're going to great people and teachers of the game.

Rick Little

This is a historic opportunity in this global environment for Michigan teachers to work in Taiwan, teaching English to children there, then return to their classrooms in Michigan with a greater knowledge to share with our students here.

Mike Flanagan

To date, with all of the interviews that we've done and the evidence that we have in our possession, nothing would indicate anything other than that the deputies and the SWAT members on the scene, the school board members, the teachers, the (school resource officer), the security officer all thought it was a real weapon.

Joyce Dawley

The only reason we make good role models is because you guys look up to athletes and we can influence you in positive ways. But the real role models should be your parents and teachers!

Dante Hall

I don't think, budget-wise, we could afford to start a program. But I can't say that even if we did have the money, that we could find the teachers.

Ann Marie Dillon

Arkansas taxpayers, firemen, nurses, teachers, police officers, and other public servants are the ones who are really going to be paying the price of this tax - not the oil companies. State employees will see the value of their funds reduced and taxpayers will be left to make up the losses.

Harry Alford

You want the local community, where the teachers have such strong power in the political process, supporting what you want to do.

Mark Jackson

We hope that more teachers recognize this is not constructive and that we can work together.

Lekan Oguntoyinbo

Before they enter into teachers' colleges they should screen them and have specific questions on why they want to be a teacher.

Renee Miller

We are very excited about our test scores. Hard work on the part of our students, teachers and administrators paid off.

Diana Greene

Tremendous disappointment of millions of taxpayers and teachers and parents over this Legislature's failure to act on property tax relief and education reform.

Patrick Perry

I've seen changes in our teachers and in their motivation, through more relevant lesson plans, assessments that are more authentic, projects that are more real-world based ... more than at any other time. Students are performing at a higher level than ever before. It's new, it's working. It's goal-driven and career-based. Today's schools are becoming more like an adult learning environment.

Candace Millington

If you decide to add football it is important to hire good coaches. It is important to have all coaches work together. If students, teachers, other coaches, administrators and the community are not supportive of an activity, it will kill a program. I feel like anything we add will be a plus for the kids and the community.

Junior Wise

Quite frankly, teachers are the only profession that teach our children.

Dan Quayle

We are also expecting several teachers to retire.

Thomas Finlan

One thing we tried to do in our pay for performance plan was make it available not just to individual teachers but to schools where teachers work as a team to raise student performance.

Ron Stone

Whatever Josh allegedly did, I'm very shocked because Josh is a good kid. Since he's been with us, our relationship has been good. We didn't have any complaints from teachers or anything.

Dexter Williams

Obviously we have a long way to go. Even if you have high numbers (of certified instructors) in the aggregate, there are pockets where students are being taught by teachers that are not highly qualified.

Rene Islas

If these young teachers feel isolated or disconnected, they will leave.

Russell Kinlaw

It's very difficult for students to learn with substitute teachers.

Bonnie Hoppel

Our kids have had some of the same teachers, same schools as we have had.

Heidi Adamski

The government should sit down with teachers and work out a deal. I don't want to see a general strike. I don't want to see people not returning to work. It's the premier who has to show some leadership and step up to the plate. He missed an opportunity again today.

Carole James

We're also going to work with selling more tickets in the schools and get the students and teachers more involved.

Jim Smythe

I think the cost should be borne mainly by the government and if teachers are to bear any cost of it (upgrading), the government should provide them with loans.

Ruel Reid

We spend an awful lot of money training people and developing them in these underperforming schools, but at the end of the year, these teachers are taking the training and experience and moving on to better districts.

Anne Anderson

Maybe some connections could help legislatively and get teachers' pay up -- it's one of the lowest in the country.

Shelle Youngblut

Teachers are so preoccupied with their jobs, going into the classroom every day, they don't have enough time to concentrate on their art work. By creating an exhibit limited to art teachers, it creates a level playing field. It's kind of a reward for those people who perform these multiple roles.

Carol Brode

Where does it end? School teachers, day-care providers? This opens a Pandora's Box.

Frank Mylar

It's a nice coincidence. It provides a nice campus atmosphere. Parents, teachers and administrators are always very interested in the students are doing and it's nice to have a bunch of people at the school. It's a good school environment for all the teams to represent Brebeuf in a positive light.

Brian Murray

A teacher's role is to be informative, but not persuasive. They need to talk to students. They need to make sure they know the issues, but like any other political issue, their role is not to express a specific opinion. A teacher is a citizen. A teacher has every right to ? on their own time ? be as public as they want, no matter how popular or unpopular their views.

Gayle Fallon

Teachers are frustrated. They just don't know if they are going to be laid off or not. They'll find out when they come back from spring break.

Rhonda Johnson

Mayor Bloomberg gave the teachers the largest raise in history and is optimistic that we can agree to another one.

Jordan Barowitz

I write books to change the world. Perhaps I can only change one little piece of that world. But if I can empower teachers and good citizens to give these children, who are the poorest of the poor, the same opportunity we give our own kids, then I'll feel my life has been worth it.

Jonathan Kozol

To be honest, drugs and alcohol are bigger concerns right now than steroids. Those are huge problems with kids right now. So if you test for steroids, you have to test for all drugs. And if you test kids, then you also have to test coaches and teachers. You have to hold that standard across the board with everybody.

Frank Sandomenico

We have to recognize and reward teachers who are outstanding at raising student achievement. Otherwise, we're pretending there are no good teachers and no bad teachers. And that's demeaning to the profession.

Ross Wiener

If we are well-connected to the schools, we're going to have a better understanding of what students will need as teachers.

Frances Kochan

If you are going to do something real, do a decent wage for teachers if you want to keep them.

Theo Harris

'The Ron Clark Story' is the true story of one teacher's courage to leave his small hometown and head to one of the most challenging public schools in the country.

Michael Wright

A number of families who attended Eighth Street are back as parents and teachers now. It seems that it is very common amongst people coming home - Ashley and I are not unique in that regard. Our parents instilled in us a sense of connection when we were young. It's great to see our daughter go to our school and encounter that feeling of comfort and camaraderie, that feeling of home.

Brent Dorman

In order for this to work, we're going to need a plethora of highly educated teachers. We don't have those teachers right now. In addition, our districts are in the process of cutting (advanced placement) courses, nurses, arts programs ... we just have major financial constraints.

Martha Wise

I just can't support seeing any classroom teachers walking out the door. They're our backbone. I'd like to see something where we look at something else -- supplies, after school programs, something. You're going right to the heart with these cuts.

John Criscuolo

One of the big things that Boise seemed to have a problem with at this school. Was that we were paying to teach all these teachers, but they were going to other states because of better pay and what not.

Verlene Powell

I don't want to inconvenience anyone. I want to give Elizabeth the best training experience. I'm teaching students and teachers how to deal with a service dog, how to expect service dogs to act.

Andrea Cohen

It's good for teachers not to focus only on the tests.

Mike Reynolds

He sells it as a big program but it is only a 1.6 percent raise for teachers.

David Kochman

You can't wait until August to know how many students you are going to have and how many teachers you need. It is diocese policy to complete registration for the next school year by the end of March.

Rev. Kirby Hlavaty

The whole ordeal went by so fast it seemed like it was 30 seconds. I could not have done it without training providing by the good teachers I had.

Matt Mcauly

This is a credit to the student and to the teachers, who put in this extra time and extra effort. This is also a reflection of the education system here in Union City, and Superintendent Stanly Sanger and the Board of Education, who back these programs to the max.

Principal David Wilcomes

It can be quite hard for teachers to understand what pupils are saying sometimes.

Sue Fox

Students will see the link between high school class preparation and planning for a post-secondary education and the workplace. Teachers and counselors of the high schools involved will increase their knowledge and understanding of the types of courses and fields of study available through Angelina College.

Jerry Whitaker

We teach the vocabulary that teachers are teaching in the classroom to ELL students a few weeks ahead of time. Its known as 'priori-teaching,' which is a huge part of our teaching.

Becky Sukanen

There are things teachers implement that aren't reflected in the improvement plans or in scores, ... There are things they are doing right every day.

Jerry Taylor

Don't try to fix the students, fix ourselves first. The good teacher makes the poor student good and the good student superior. When our students fail, we, as teachers, too, have failed.

Marva Collins

The engineers and the teachers do that.

Mary Peterson

It crosses the line of student-teacher relations. There's no acceptable reason for why a teacher would do that. You hold your teachers to a higher standard; you expect them to respect your child.

Lucy Berry

I'm very humbled. I work with a great team of teachers.

Mary Malloy

I've spoken directly to Jim Merchant, the head of the teachers union, and told him to expect tough bargaining if I'm elected to the School Board.

Colin Butler

Many kids with (attention deficit disorder) have been misdiagnosed, they're actually bored with teachers, as most won't even blink at concentrating on video games for hours.

Nolan Bushnell

It's a total effort of the whole staff. It's nothing that I've done by myself. All the teachers work hard, and they don't hesitate to call me when they are concerned about a student.

David Lawhon

I feel it shouldn't just be me out of all the great teachers we have here. I get a little embarrassed at times. I am one of many great teachers here. Hopefully I'll represent the school well.

Jamie Reid

They're in the best position to be evangelists, teachers and influencers. They're in a great position to be champions.

Ken Denman

Some teachers are literally instructing under a tree, under a tent, at a nice new picnic table.

Lindsay Ball

We're building 10-12 brand new schools every year, and we're hiring around 2000 teachers every year.

Mary Ella Holloway

When you have Kelly girls and boys grading those things that will determine whether teachers' will get that pay is unconscionable in my estimation.

Anne Spencer

It's great because this allows them to study with various teachers, which is something they can't do here. They get to have a wide array of ballet classes-classes they wouldn't normally be able to take like classical jazz, Pilates, or character dancing.

Heather Raue

Sometimes there is a level of discomfort for faculty policing the dress code. It is fairly common for there to be discomfort in male teachers policing female students and vice versa.

Troy Portser

I think both of them have given so much. This is great. It speaks so much of them as teachers, and as colleagues of teachers.

Mary Brooks

The job market for teachers is very good right now. They predict we're going to need about 2 million more educators over the next decade as (baby boomer generation) teachers retire. There is also going to be strong demand because of growing student enrollment and class reduction measures. The potential for employment in teaching has never been higher.

Melinda Anderson

One out of four students that we have in the county schools speak another first language. It's helpful to have bilingual teachers to be able to communicate with parents. In some cases, the students may speak English but the parents may or may not speak English. And it's critical to communicate with the parents.

Steve Byrne

Schools were starting earlier and earlier. I talked with parents, teachers and principals from all over the state. There was just no reason to be going to school in early August.

Larry Mckeown

I didn't have a teacher like Sister Mary Ignatius, ... But I believed everything my teachers and many in my family said.

Christopher Durang

I would love to get more much students involved. I've been talking to teachers and parents trying to get everyone interested in this important event.

I'm real excited, ... They're very enthusiastic. They're all quality teachers and coaches, great people.

Ann Miller

It's important to the students and it helps build relationships between teachers and students outside of the classroom. You get to know them on a personal level. They step out of their comfort zone. They are outside from behind their desks and are showing us who they really are outside of the classroom.

Caitlin Sullivan

[Some parishes are still trying to pay teachers, even though school will probably not be in session for months - if at all.] We can't just cut these people off, ... We're going to attempt to make payroll for as long as is financially possible.

Carol Roberts

I don't share in the belief that a whole bunch of teachers are taking money and mishandling funds.

John Benson

We got two really good people. Considering we're not hiring many teachers, we got a really good deal.
