Some Thoughts On Teaching Others From Various Authors

“[Kids] don’t remember what you try to teach them. They remember what you are.”

Jim Henson

“True teachers are those who use themselves as bridges over which they invite their students to cross; then, having facilitated their crossing, joyfully collapse, encouraging them to create their own.”

Nikos Kazantzakis

“We never know which lives we influence, or when, or why.”

Stephen King

“I never teach my pupils, I only attempt to provide the conditions in which they can learn.”

Albert Einstein

“I’ve come to a frightening conclusion that I am the decisive element in the classroom. It’s my personal approach that creates the climate. It’s my daily mood that makes the weather. As a teacher, I possess a tremendous power to make a child’s life miserable or joyous. I can be a tool of torture or an instrument of inspiration. I can humiliate or heal. In all situations, it is my response that decides whether a crisis will be escalated or de-escalated and a child humanized or dehumanized.”

Haim G. Ginott
