American Poet, Painter
1894 - 1962
Ask any teacher and they will tell you, if they are being honest with themselves: that it is easier to learn something yourself, then to teach someone else how to do something. It is easier to write a novel then to teach someone else how to write a novel. It is easier to paint a picture than teaching someone to paint. So never badmouth a teacher. They deserve respect. What they do is special. And the good ones have been given a gift that most of us will never have. As another school year is coming to a close, celebrate the teachers in your life. Celebrate those who fostered your creativity and talent. Give thanks for those who inspired you and mentored you.
