1 Student Motivation and Teacher Excellence July 24, 2001

2 Education The word “Education” comes from the Latin word, Educatus, meaning “Brought Out”

3 “The educator does not pour truth or untruth into the mind of others but draws out of others their latent abilities and stimulates them to be original and creative” Emory S. Bogardus

4 “We know how to find pearls in the shells of oysters, gold in the mountains, and coal in the bowels of the earth, but we are unaware of the spiritual gems, the creative nebulae that the child hides in himself when he enters this world to renew mankind.” Maria Montessori

5 “Truth is within ourselves; it takes no rise From outward things, whate’er you may believe. There is an inmost center in us all, Where truth abides in fullness; and around Wall upon wall, the gross flesh hems it in,... And to know Rather consists in opening out a way Whence the imprisoned splendor may escape, Than in effecting entry for a light Supposed to be without.” Robert Browning - Paracelsus

6 “We do not see things as they are; we see things as we are.” The Talmud

7 “ Compulsion is not an attribute of Conviction”

8 “We grow through the medium of our own recognitions.”

11 “No one ever rose to low expectations”

12 “Leaders must learn to stand alone and can ever do so if they love enough. For the soul that cannot stand alone has nothing to give.”

13 “We create relationship through communication.”

14 “The nature of the relationship among the adults at the school has more to do with the school’s quality, its character, and the achievement of its students than any other factor.” Roland Barth

15 We can make our minds so like still water that beings gather about us that they may see, it may be, their own images and so live for a moment with a clearer, perhaps even with a fiercer, life because of our quiet. W. B. Yeats
