Thanks and Gratitude for Educational Heroes

"One looks back with appreciation to the brilliant teachers, but with gratitude to those who touched our human feelings. The curriculum is so much necessary raw material, but warmth is the vital element for the growing plant and for the soul." ~Carl Jung

"If a doctor, lawyer, or dentist had 40 people in his office at one time, all of whom had different needs, and some of whom didn't want to be there and were causing trouble, and the doctor, lawyer, or dentist, without assistance, had to treat them all with professional excellence for nine months, then he might have some conception of the classroom teacher's job." ~Donald D. Quinn

For you, I don't know why
But you, make it all clear

And you, wrap it up perfectly

For you, I'll do my best

You never taught me how to win,

But to be justified

You never told me what to do,

You just guided me through it

The paths were all laid,

But you let me run so free

You never carried me to the grass,

You let me swim the seas

For you, is why I am here today

But you, are half the reason

And you, let me make mistakes

So for you, I learn from them.
