Words of Wisdom on the First Day Back

Today is my first day back!  I'm up early, getting stuff ready, and wanted to share my favorite favorite favorite quote that sums up the gravity of our profession, the importance of our interactions, and the true power that we have as educators.

I've shared this Hiam Ginott quote before, but have made a printable to share.  I have this hanging in my area in my classroom and it's a great little reminder about the impact we have on kids.  Click the pic to download a copy to hang in your room and inspire yourself with!  And happy new school year to all!!!!!


  1. Good morning! Thanks for the great quote! I grabbed it for sure! We hang words of wisdom in our teacher's bathrooms and this is just where yours is going. . . Think of it as a quiet place for teachers to think, regroup, compose themselves and reflect. . . your addition to our bathroom will not only give us some great words to live by, but also make it look prettier too!
    Thanks friend!
    P.S. Here's to a brand new year and a great group of kids!

  2. Quotes and inspiring words-amazing reflection tools! THANK YOU!

  3. Thanks for sharing--this is awesome! Good luck on your first day back. :)

  4. This is a fabulous quote - in fact it is used by the district my husband and I work for as a culminating event at all of the New Teacher Orientations. I still have mine posted in my cupboard to see daily to remind me of my actions and words towards my students, it's one that continues to stick with me.

  5. Love this quotes - what a great reminder! Thanks for sharing.
