"If" For Teachers
If you can see your students as diamonds in the rough.
Inspiring them to do their best, and not just "good enough."
If you can open doorways, light sparks, and keep them glowing.
And see the love of learning as seeds that you are sewing.
If you can keep on caring and remember why you teach.
You'll give your students wings to fly and show them stars to reach.Quotes"A hundred years from now it will not matter what my bank account was, the sort of house I lived in, or the kind of car I drove . . . . but the world maybe different because I was important in the life of a child." - Kathy Davis
