To a child thrust into a strange world, a good teacher is the best thing that can possibly happen.
A teacher is Courage with Kleenex in its pocket. Sympathy struggling with a snowsuit, and Patience with papers to grade.
Teachers spend twelve hours a day searching for truth and the other twelve hours searching for error.
They are incorruptible, indispensable, infallible, invincible, and nearly inexhaustible.
A teacher really does not mind sniffles, squirmings, stomach-aches, spills, sloth and sauciness. Neither does he or she disintegrate before tears, trifles, fights, futility, excuses, parents who spout, little boys who shout, or little girls who pout.
Most of all, a teacher is somebody who likes somebody else’s children — and still has enough strength left to go to the PTA meeting.
Thank heaven for teachers.
–Chevron, L., “The Teacher”
