A Teacher's Goal

“At times our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person. Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lighted the flame within us.”
~Albert Schweitzer

“One looks back with appreciation to the brilliant teachers, but with gratitude to those who touched our human feelings.”
~Carl Jung

I can think of so many educators who have lit my on lights along the way. I only hope that they know how deeply they affected me, and how integral a role they played in my becoming the person I am today.

Thanks for the reminder.

I am where I am because of my teachers. I was never interested. But they never gave up on me. Thank you for shaping the future generation!
