Description

"Education is not a preparation for life; education is life itself." --John Dewey "Every time you stop a school, you will have to build a jail." --Mark Twain "Teachers, I believe, are the most responsible and important members of society because their professional efforts affect the fate of the earth." --Helen Caldicott "From what we get, we can make a living; what we give, however, makes a life." --Arthur Ashe "Everything they become, I also become. And everything about me, they helped to create." --Esmé Raji Codell Every morning, writes Randy Howe, hundreds of thousands of teachers get up to face the most demanding audience anyone could ever hope to know--a roomful of students. He learns from those who have stood up before him, great thinkers like Confucius, Henry David Thoreau, Kahlil Gibran, Marie Curie, Thomas Jefferson, bell hooks, James Joyce, Kierkegaard, Maya Angelou, Albert Einstein, B.F. Skinner, Thomas A. Kempis, Charles Dickens, Judith Viorst, and George Bernard Shaw. THE QUOTABLE TEACHER is the perfect gift to inspire new teachers, and to thank favorite ones.show more
