Statements of my beliefs about the

Teaching Process


We must see that every child has equal opportunity, not to become equal, but to become different-to realize the unique potential he or she possesses. - John Fischer



Education is learning what you didn't know you didn't know. -Daniel J. Boorstin



Education takes place in the combination of the home, the community, the school, and the receptive mind. -Harry Edwards



An education isn't how much you have committed to memory. It's knowing where to go to find out what you need to know, and it's knowing how to use the information you get. -William Feather



  It's not what people eat,

            but what they digest
            that makes them strong
            It is no what they gain
            but what they save
            that makes them rich
            It is not what they read
            but what they remember
            that makes them learn.
            It is by teaching that we teach ourselves,
            by relating that we observe
            by affirming that we examine
            by showing that we look
            by writing that we think
            by pumping that we draw water into the well.
            -Henri Fredric Amiel


The aim of education is to teach us
how to think,
what to think.
- unknown
bullet Instruction my end in the schoolroom but education ends only with life. - unknown
To learn and never be filled
is wisdom
To teach and never be weary
is love


bullet To teach is to learn twice. -Joseph Joubert
bullet A teacher makes two ideas where only one grew before. -Elbert Hubbard
