4  “The task of the excellent teacher is to stimulate apparently ordinary people to unusual effort. The tough problem is not in identifying winners; it is in making winners out of ordinary people.”  “True Education is what students remember when all that has been learned is forgotten.”  “If a doctor, lawyer, or dentist had 25 people in his office at one time, all of whom had different needs, and some of whom didn’t want to be there and were causing trouble, and the doctor, lawyer, or dentist, without assistance, had to treat them all with professional excellence for nine months; then he might have some conception of the classroom’s teacher’s job.”  “ You don’t need to be perfect to inspire others. Let people get inspired by how you deal with your imperfections.” Professional Development & Learning Communities Learn to Grow & Grow to Learn LTGS|Consulting Services
