Some of my favorite teaching quotes:

“Thought flows in terms of stories – stories about events, stories about people, and stories about intentions and achievements. The best teachers are the best story tellers. We learn in the form of stories.” ~ Frank Smith

“The teachers who get “burned out” are not the ones who are constantly learning, which can be exhilarating, but those who feel they must stay in control and ahead of the students at all times.” ~ Frank Smith

“Teachers who inspire know that teaching is like cultivating a garden, and those who would have nothing to do with thorns must never attempt to gather flowers.” ~ Author Unknown

“Good teaching is more a giving of right questions than a giving of right answers.” ~ Josef Albers

“The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates. The great teacher inspires.” ~ William Arthur Ward

“Spoon feeding in the long run teaches us nothing but the shape of the spoon.” ~ E. M. Forster

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

“I’m not a teacher but an awakener.” ~ Robert Frost

“It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge.” ~ Albert Einstein

“A teacher affects eternity; he can never tell where his influence stops.” ~ Henry Brooks Adams

In hindsight, they are my favorite teachers.
