"The most inspirational teachers I know are some of my former students.
They have given me a vision of what a great student looks like." ~ Quote by Rafe Esquith
As I begin a new week, I want to feel inspiration burst from within me, and say, "Good morning, class!" with a bright smile on my face!
After spending the weekend reading the passions and aspirations of my current students, I realize that my students are truly my inspiration for being a great teacher.
I want to share some of the quotes that inspired me, and I hope that these quotes inspire all teachers who want to make a difference in the classroom.
