15th June is the feast of Jean-Baptiste de la Salle: Patron Saint of Teachers

    

"I am the decisive element in the classroom. It is my personal approach that creates the climate. It's my daily mood that makes the weather. As a teacher I possess tremendous power to make a child's life miserable or joyous. I can be a tool of torture or an instrument of inspiration. I can humiliate or humour, hurt or heal. In all situations it is my response that decides whether a crisis will be escalated or de-escalated - a child humanised or de-humanised."

Dr. Haim Ginott, 1972.

   

SCHOOLS ARE LIKE JIGSAW PUZZLES:
Each edge piece of a puzzle interlocks with two others to form the puzzle's framework and give structure and support to the puzzle as a whole. Each piece has a unique design and cut that ensure just the right place to fit within the puzzle. Each morning, staff members form edge pieces that interlock to create a safe environment and give support to each other and the whole. Each morning, they provide just the 'right place' for each of the students to fit safely and securely. The staff members are strength and stability, and like the edge pieces, they do not stand alone in this responsibility. There are always others to support and assist, ensuring that each and every student has a place.
- Karen Hegeman

 

I AM A TEACHER:

I am a Teacher.
I was born the first moment that a question leaped from the mouth of a child.
I have been many people in many places.
I am Socrates exciting the youth of Athens to discover new ideas through the use of questions.
I am Anne Sullivan tapping out the secrets of the universe into the outstretched hand of Helen Keller.
I am Aesop and Hans Christian Andersen revealing truth through countless stories.
I am Marva Collins fighting for every child's right to an education.
I am Mary McLeod Bethune building a great college for my people, using orange crates for desks.
And I am Bel Kaufman struggling to go Up The Down Staircase.
The names of those who have practiced my profession ring like a hall of fame for humanity ... Booker T. Washington, Buddha, Confucius, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Leo Buscaglia, Moses and Jesus.
I am also those whose names and faces have long been forgotten but whose lessons and character will always be remembered in the accomplishment of their students.
I have wept for joy at their weddings of former students, laughed with glee at the birth of their children and stood bowed in grief and confusion by graves dug too soon far too young.
Throughout the course of a day I have been called upon to be an actor, friend, nurse and doctor, coach, finder of lost articles, money lender, taxi driver, psychologist, substitute parent, salesman, politician and keeper of the faith.
Despite the maps, charts, formulas, verbs, stories and books, I have really had nothing to teach, for my students really have only themselves to learn, and I know it takes the whole world to tell you who you are.
I am a paradox. I speak loudest when I listen the most. My greatest gifts are in what I am willing to appreciatively receive from my students.
Material wealth is not one of my goals, but I am a full-time treasure seeker in my quest for new opportunities for my students to use their talents and in my constant search for those talents that sometimes lie buried in self-defeat.
I am the most fortunate of all who labour.
A doctor is allowed to usher life into the world in one magic moment. I am allowed to see that life is reborn each day with new questions, ideas and friendships.
An architect knows if he builds with care, his structure may stand for centuries. A teacher knows that if he builds with love and truth, what he builds will last forever.
I am a warrior, daily doing battle against peer pressure, negativity, fear, conformity, prejudice, ignorance and apathy. But I have great allies: Intelligence, Curiosity, Parental Support, Individuality, Creativity, Faith, Love and Laughter all rush to my banner with indomitable support.
And who do I have to thank for this wonderful life I am so fortunate to experience, but you the public, the parents. For you have done me the great honour to entrust to me your greatest contribution to eternity, your children.
And so I have a past that is rich in memories. I have a present that is challenging, adventurous and fun because I am allowed to spend my days with the future.
I am a teacher ... and I thank God for it every day.
    
A TEACHER IS LIKE AN ELASTIC BAND:
I hold together a group - a human group, providing cohesion and unity and security;
I must stretch to encompass all, having room for everyone, never showing the strain of being stretched too far;
I must twist and contort to accommodate my student's views, opinions and thoughts, never letting my own judgments and limitations hinder their spirits to soar;
I must shoot across the room, be here, be there, ricocheting from student to student;
everything to everyone;
I must be flexible, adaptable, versatile.
I must be willing to let go of all that I have held and felt a familiarity with;
And warp around, in total acceptance, a new group, perhaps very different from the last, but just as special, just as precious;
I am often taken for granted, sometimes thrown aside;
But in times of need or crisis, a quick search, and I am there;
Trustworthy, reliable; always willing to help.
Sometimes I am stretched too far and I cannot hold on. I snap;
Languid and broken, I mend myself, joining the broken ends together;
Not quite the same as what I was before, perhaps a little wiser about how much to take on;
but once again, ready to hold, support, and gather in Community.

-Andrea Tapp
