Superintendent Weekly Update

I hope that this weekly bulletin finds each of you in good health and having enjoyed your weekend.  Last week, November 16-22, was American Education Week 2014.  Thanks for all you do for our kids. Here are a few quotes about teaching:

A teacher affects eternity; he can never tell where his influence stops.  Henry Brooks Adams Teachers, I believe, are the most responsible and important members of society because their professional efforts affect the fate of the earth.  Helen Caldicott The dream begins, most of the time, with a teacher who believes in you, who tugs and pushes and leads you on to the next plateau, sometimes poking you with a sharp stick called truth.  Dan Rather There is no word in the English language that I revere more than teacher.  Pat Conroy There is an old saying that the course of civilization is a race between catastrophe and education.  In a democracy such as ours, we must make sure that education wins the race.  John F. Kennedy Better than a thousand days of diligent study is one day with a great teacher.  Japanese Proverb Whoever first coined the phrase "you're the wind beneath my wings" most assuredly was reflecting on the sublime influence of a very special teacher.  Frank Trujillo In a completely rational society, the best of us would be teachers and the rest of us would have to settle for something less.  Lee Iacocca
