Teaching quotes

| -Uncategorized


  • A teacher is one who makes himself progressively unnecessary. (Thomas Carruthers)
  • The teacher must derive not only the capacity, but the desire, to observe natural phenomena. In our system, she must become a passive, much more than an active, influence, and her passivity shall be composed of anxious scientific curiosity and of absolute respect for the phenomenon which she wishes to observe. The teacher must understand and feel her position of observer: the activity must lie in the phenomenon. (Maria Montessori)
  • We must view young people not as empty bottles to be filled, but as candles to be lit. (Robert H. Shaffer
