Briellesm0m16Aug 22 21 - 17:39 My favorite teacher was Ms Smith My art teacher ! She was amazing, Kind, treated all the kids equally, you could tell teaching was a passion of hers! She always told us 2 things 'Find Your Passion' and 'Don't be in a hurry to grow up'. I always wanted to grow fast and boy do I wish I never wanted to grow up so quickly!

Member530756281706Aug 19 21 - 13:19 Success in your endeavors is not as dependent upon what you know, as it is the amount of effort you're willing to put forth....That "little bit extra" i.E. Reporting early to work, seeing tasks to completion, always doing more than the "minimum,"....That's what will stand out and set you apart.

Thank you to all of my teachers at Mentone Elementary, Moore Jr. High and Redlands High School.

Алтынай1993Aug 16 21 - 13:57 It is much more important that while sitting in the classroom and completing assignments, you learn to live: how to quarrel and communicate with different people, how to listen to others and respond politely. You do not understand this, because there are so many tasks that you are disgusted with them. Believe me, you are learning to be independent adults, this is the most important thing.
Aigerim AubakirovaAug 16 21 - 13:53 Our teacher kept repeating: - Teach, cram, but do not overestimate your mind, because "Only Allah knows by 5, I know by 4, and you, my dear ones, by 3 and 2. I will write more if I win🤗
Member313220216120Aug 16 21 - 13:22 As a teacher, my favorite advice has been, “Students don’T care how much you know until they know how much you care.” My priority is to make sure every student in my class knows that I care for them and that they matter.

Mary0323Aug 13 21 - 12:52 My favorite piece of advice was the only way you can fail at something is by not trying. I was always to scared to do things because I didn’T want to fail. I thought not doing something was better then failing. I was so wrong and this amazing teacher opened my eyes. She also pushed me. Because of her, I am who I am today. I also tell my kids her advice all the time.
rahnzap4Aug 13 21 - 12:41 My favorite teacher told us to stop trying to figure out what you want to "be" when you grow up, but instead focus on what you want to "give" to the world when you grow up.

gontyra1Aug 11 21 - 04:54 My Freshman Social Science Professor advised me on how my academic journey was going to be by quoting Frederick Douglas. He told me “My prayers went unanswered for 20 years until I prayed with my legs”.
Such a profound way of thought, don’T you think? It can be such a different meaning from one person to the next; in the way, people’S perceptions are so unique. The lasting legacy of those words have had an indelible and permanent impact on my life.

Member831280130649Aug 10 21 - 22:29 Parents need to support and develop a sense of beauty in their children.
The ability to see and create beauty is very important for a person, and in many ways this ability is laid down in childhood. Try to surround your baby with the beauty of speech, a warm family atmosphere, walk more often in nature, see beautiful illustrations, read good books. Convey wisdom in words, teach to love, forgive, empathize. All this will help him to develop harmoniously.

Mrs., Denmark was so influential in my life when I took my first Spanish class as an African American.

Mrs Denmark was an African American woman who spoke fluent Spanish just from learning it in school herself.

keikodesuAug 10 21 - 19:06 Kindness! My 11th grade Mythology teacher Ms. Cole was absolutely the sweetest teacher i’Ve ever had. I never once saw her upset or mad at a student or otherwise, always addressed each student with a big smile and during times she wasn’T teaching if we had a question she always made it a point to kneel down next to us while she listened and answered our questions. The result was a class full of people who listened intently to each other, engaged in the lessons and made us feel like her classroom truly was a safe space. It’S been about 12 years since I sat in that classroom and I always think of her!
