"Education for some is a job, it's a profession, it's a career. Then there are others who realize Education isn't work, it's a Calling. In other words, There's a difference between singularly being trained to teach and being born to teach. Students know the difference."
“Now I think it’s one of the most useless questions an adult can ask a child—What do you want to be when you grow up? As if growing up is finite. As if at some point you become something and that’s the end.”

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?' But honestly, who are you to not be so?"
― Marianne Williamson
“If kids come to us from strong, healthy functioning families, it makes our job easier. If they do not come to us from strong, healthy, functioning families, it makes our job more important.”
