When I was young, they’d always teach
That I, aspiring, ought
To practice only what I preach,
Not merely what I’m taught.
Teachers may stake their claim in facts,
But great are those that slink
Their lessons twixt all those abstracts,
And teach us how to think.

To teach is not just to educate but to inform. Everybody is a teacher just asbeverybody is a student. This life is filled with lessons and meaning… I don’t believe there is one path for everybody. I believe everybody is individual. And on your journey you take in the lessons tauggt to you in order to continue on your perfect journey you call your life. Life is the lesson and we are all the incredible teachers.

He was teaching at the school, all the kids looking up at him expectantly. He took a deep breath and began. “Hello class! Today is the first day back, we will begin by talking about the history of ancient rome.” The class groaned audibly, “why?” They said.

It is something that is very important without it we would be uncivilized. people learn how to read and write and geography and grammar and history. those are a few things they do.

Today instead of listenning i tought. I thought I could teach. Tell stories to make the minds evolve. Tell tales. Teach numbers, teach the past, teach the future.

Teaching is very important. This process let’s one man or woman transfer his knowledge to other man or woman.

I watched the wind chimes clank beautifully in the air above me. I lay on the wooden porch floor, the light blue paint peeling ever so slowly in the summer heat. I remembered the boy who no longer mattered and how much I hated him and how much he taught me. I’ll never be able to repay him for those bitter memories, that extra shove into reality. But he’ll never be able to repay me for the kind of friendship I showed him–the kind that cares so much it hurts and holds on until it’s too much to handle. I’m sorry I let go.
But I’m even sorrier that you didn’t hold on with the right grasp.

Giving yourself up. Your knowledge, your experience, you thoughts, your passion. Guiding another individual from the lack of information and seeing them develop their own thoughts and ideas regarding something greater. To teach.

teaching is about sharing knowledge with other people and influencing how they think. to teach is to inspire and to provoke thinking in others. a good teacher doesn’t just share knowledge but shows you have to understand it by yourself

A teacher once told me that i could never graduate high school, and i probably wouldn’t because of my bad work habit. He told me this 1st quarter my freshman year. well now it’s 3rd quarter my senior yer and i’m 3 credits behind. lolz.

I want to teach for a living. I’d love to be a part of the future. Teaching children to be the best they can be to better the world. An art teacher to elementary aged students. Teaching them to be creative and express themselves in a positive way. That’s what I want more than anything in the world.

This is my profession, the reason I get out of bed every day. The reason I face young wanting minds and I try to take them from a state of knowing less to one of knowing more. This, is I believe, the only word that will save our world.

Learn, he said, learn
how the sky circles the earth
How fire was there at your birth
How bigger is sometimes worse
How blessings become a curse
How pennies are lost in a purse
How tricycle turns into a hearse
Learn, he said, learn,
there’s no time to rehearse

The highest form of learning and something I have always appreciated. There is a pedestal I tend to put my professors onto, I wonder how do I build the stepladder up to that pedestal for myself one day. I want to know so much and I love the idea of devoting my life to inspiring others to feel something similar.

Teachers are so awesome, I loved mine. With a few execeptions(???). I would never be a teacher. I hate people. And yet I loved mine. Go figure.
Time’s not up yet? Oh.

Sandy was looking forward to sharing the gifts with the children at the orphanage Saturday. ” I hope the clear weather holds through the weekend, ” she said to Gerald. ” I am so looking forward to a sleigh ride through the forest and the look on the kids’ faces will be priceless.”

i love to teach people things and be taught new things. i taught my brothers and cousins how to read and write. teaching things well is an invaluable skill. i wish i knew more, so i could teach more.
By Keisha on 11.06.2012
to teach involves passion for learning.
to teach is more than imparting knowledge. to teach is something more beautiful than that. teaching implies values, emotion, passion, connection; connection to the students and to the world

They tried to teach me, but in the end, I wasn’t a great learner. By the third week of class, I was already a two weeks behind. And it didn’t get any better. That is, until I met her. Amanda Lynn. The smartest, most amazing girl.

He taught me everything I knew and I turned it against him, blinded by lust for power. It was all I ever wanted, to have you say you were proud of me. You never did. Always with the criticism. Do it this way, not that way. Not that I was perfect but it would be nice to have you say that I wasn’t as worthless as you made me feel.

Talk and listen. Inspiration and knowledge. These are the
Extraordinary things one can obtain while both teaching
And learning. These intimate novelties, these
Curious implements, these are the rewards of sharing and giving to both mind and

I have been thinking about how infants have been teaching me lately. Learning about patience, trust, love… learning about humor in trials, learning about myself. I never knew I could love so unconditionally someone that was forced into my arms. Do they feel it back? Even more so?

Let me teach you a thing,
A thing of hate.
Let me teach you,
What it is like to burn with rage.
What it is like to dream of bloodshed.
What it is like to wish for death.
Let me teach you all of this,
And let me watch you,
As you are consumed by this knowledge.
Something everyone wants to be good at. You have to pay attention and learn from it. You can make a career doing this. Something your parents try to do. You usually listen and obey your lesson.

You’re a leech stuck to my skin
Drawing blood, I can’t let you in
You’re to teach a lesson to me?
Now how is that supposed to be?

Teaching does more than just show knowledge. It provides a stepping stool. Students take that and indulge in a world full of possibilities. It becomes a way of life. Teaching is something you can’t get away from.

teaching is great. I have a teacher. he and she teach well……… i dont know what else to say, ummm…. teaching gets you to learn stuff, so you can go to university, and then live a happy life…. yea. that’s it.

I had a teacher named Ms. D in the third grade. I was so unpopular. And I received my first failing grade that year. My main teacher just didn’t have the warm or nurturing demeanor, but the student teacher, she changed my life. She taught me to count.

I am going to be a teacher. I look forward to this day as I will give my knowledge and experiences to the younger generation. I will be deciding partly how their future turns out. I will shape their lives in a positive or negative way. I can make them hate or love my subject area. I hold so much power in my hands and it excites me.

He teaches me. He taught me to be humble. And always challenge what you think theyre thinking. He teaches me to follow my heart, not my doubt.
