Sayings about good morning for her

When love has fused and mingled two beings in a sacred and angelic unity, the secret of life has been discovered so far as they are concerned, they are no longer anything more than the two boundaries of the same destiny; they are no longer anything but the two wings of the same spirit.

This week teachers quotes

“Every time a teacher, school leader, student, or anyone in the learning community dares to step out from the system and challenge the status quo, we see the creativity, imagination, and genius come alive that makes us all human.” AJ Juliani

Teachers are the facilitators. They are the gateway for the students in all things academic and personal. They are role models, and that is what I find most rewarding. I feel rewarded every single day, and learning/teaching feels personal.” Carri Schneider

“Technology changes rapidly; we need to teach students how to learn new technology rather than teaching them specific technologies.”Laurah J.

“We know 3D printing and 3D scanning can have a huge potential on students in the classroom, bringing everyday objects to life from a vast array of projects.”
Ross Morrison McGill

Teacher quotes

Teacher appreciation quotes

“We also need to think about the context surrounding the subject that we are teaching, as learning varies across disciplines. A concrete answer may be preferred in the sciences or mathematics, for instance, but perhaps not as valued in a humanities-type class. Different contexts can affect how well a student is prepared for each kind of learning. This can also affect a student’s view of learning and achievement in general and again places emphasis on understanding how students learn.” Edudemic Staff

“Peer thinking isn’t exactly how it sounds. When we use peer thinking, we are relying on our peers to help us come to a deeper connection with the story, activity, or problem. When students team up to work on activities, they become more creative and think on a deeper level. I believe it is because the students feel more confident, but whatever the reason, it works!”  Rachel Lynette

“Yes, even teachers make mistakes.I know because I’m one of those “mistake-making teachers.” I’ve taught students of all ability-levels; I’m now serving as an instructional specialist in a 1:1 school district; I’m a parent of three amazing children who, like my students, have very different capacities for learning. My perspective comes from professional practice, 20/20 hindsight , and daily life experience.”Nira Dale, K-12 Instructional Specialist

After speaking with teachers every single day about the benefits and challenges of additional technology in their classrooms, we’ve noticed that the concept of personalized learning has not only eluded many educators, but had also instilled fear and, worse, resentment.” Talia Arbit

“I believe that students should be using technology to its fullest potential in the classroom. This means that not only should students be using it to access the wealth of information on the Internet but that they also should be using digital tools to create meaningful content.” Alice Chen

“It never fails; spring break hits and all of a sudden it seems there is very little time left of the school year. The students feel it as they grow more restless, eager to explore more, not as satisfied with the same old routine. We feel it as educators, too. We feel the sheer panic of not having done enough, not having taught enough, not being enough.” Pernille Ripp

Quotes teachers last week

The role of teachers also shifted from traditional teaching to facilitator of learning

This week the teachers say about…


“As the ideas associated with growth mindset continue to spread, schools are envisioning and experimenting with new forms of assessment that highlight the growth process and the individual path of each learner. One example of this is the student-led conference, which is quickly replacing the outdated model of parents and teachers discussing a student while he or she is not present. Together with their teachers, they set goals that are personally meaningful and achievable.”

Andrea Hernandez , Edutopia

“Learning management systems may have come onto the education scene relatively recently, but they’ve come to play a huge role in many classrooms.” Kristen Hicks

“Perhaps the most effective way to grab a person’s attention is to ask them to solve a problem.” Ellen Burns-Johnson

“As teachers, it is important that we reflect on how we understand our learners as individuals. How an individual engages with learning a language is less dependent on the materials and subject knowledge of their teacher, but is rather more connected with their teacher’s interpersonal skills and ability to create motivating and enabling learning conditions in the classroom.” Sarah Mercer, Oxford University Press ELT


“So our job is to create opportunities where we support the self-esteem of all the students while at the same time reach the desired language teaching goals. One way of achieving this in the classroom is by setting tasks that build on self-expression through flexible frameworks that can be easily used by students of mixed language levels. Through activities that involve art, music and poetry we can help students to drawn on their own content, to focus on their creative selves primarily, allowing language to emerge as a result.” Erika Osvath, co-author of ‘Mixed-Ability Teaching’
“…warm demander – a key strategy for creating equity in the classroom. Warm demanders are teachers who, in the words of author Lisa Delpit, “expect a great deal of their students, convince them of their own brilliance, and help them to reach their potential in a disciplined and structured environment.” In my two decades of working in public schools, the idea of the warm demander is the most important conceptual framework that I’ve learned, and it guides my interactions with students on a daily basis.” Matt Alexander,  June Jordan School for Equity in San Francisco.
“With personalized learning, the role of teachers also shifted from traditional teaching to facilitator of learning. Teachers are creating opportunities for students to work in groups, collaborate, experiment, discuss and revise. With students at the center of their learning, teachers are becoming more of a support person guiding their progress and learning. This has also led to more data driven decision making.”
Carri Schneider

“Poetry, just like literature, has the power to start an open conversation about issues that students care about and that directly touch students’ lives.”
Rusul Alrubail

“School climate is a key factor in establishing a foundation of forward thinkers. The climate must foster trust, support and encouragement. When those elements are in place, teachers are willing to share their thoughts and plans.”
Amanda Stone

…you’ll notice toddlers making first steps and at the same time effortlessly swiping through apps.

This week the teachers say about…

“Simply look around and you’ll notice toddlers making their first steps and at the same time effortlessly swiping through apps on their own tablets. This is the reality. In an increasingly digitalized world kids’ technological literacy is as important as their writing or reading skills.”  Erin Klein

“We, as teachers, know exactly what our students need much better than a textbook company hundreds or thousands of miles away.” Matt Miller

“About 170,000 California children who are eligible for publicly funded preschool are not enrolled because there are not enough spots for them, a new report says.
“We are missing an opportunity to reduce achievement gaps when they are best addressed, before children start kindergarten,” Deborah Kong, president of Early Edge California

“Each day in class I had another story to tell, and when we missed a day of storytelling in class, my students eagerly asked me if I had any more stories, or if we were “just going to have a regular class”  A.J. Juliani
“Trying to solve a problem before being taught the solution leads to better learning, even when errors are made in the attempt.”  Matt Miller

“There really is no end to what one can create with students in the classroom. I believe that we always must ask why are we doing it? Is the learning better and more thorough when we change the learning landscape with technology? I believe that the answer can be yes, when we take into account the goals and enduring understanding as the guide to our plans.” Brenda Inskeep

“We want our students creating, connecting and using technology in ways that simply cannot be done with older pedagogical techniques. We want to transform learning and we can do this through a combination of technology and pedagogical shifts.”
District’s Director of Connecting Languages Mariana Balsiger
“There are numerous recent blog posts in the wake of #pencilchat on Twitter, where educators and others discussed the popular “pencil analogy” regarding technology in the classroom.  …simply putting a pencil in a child’s hand won’t make them a great writer. However, if you give a student a pencil coupled with powerful, meaningful content and exceptional instruction from an energized and committed educator—a great writer may just emerge. When that occurs, is it the pencil or the content that deserves the credit?” Mike Lubelfield

“Problem-based learning, makerspaces, flipped learning, student blogging — these are becoming perceived staples of 21st-century learning. With such ambitious practices taking the spotlight for how people regard modern classrooms, it’s not surprising that a murmur of impracticality or skepticism is still a frequent response when they’re first introduced.”
Mary Wade

“People have been talking about how education is broken for decades, but many of us are aware that some schools are doing a lot of things right. The growing move to end traditional grading practices, and towards increased use of competency based assessments, are both good examples of this. Let’s keep the dream alive and continue to explore and push for these next-level approaches to more effective teaching and learning.” Kelly Walsh
