Hugs For Teachers


I bought this inspiring book couple of days ago. At first, I planned to give it as a Christmas present for my boy’s Montessori teacher but I couldn’t stand to open the plastic cover and read it myself. Really it’s a good book for teacher or someone who’s working involved with kids. I speed up my reading and had finished it in an hour last night. I found many encouraging quotes and heartwarming stories in it.
I also post this article to my other blog too.

I’ll share some of inspirational quotes here:
Every good teacher is a student of students. After all, if he is to venture to cross over to student’s side of experience, he should have some idea of where he is going and how to get there. –Wayne.R.Rood-

Abruptly, circumstances arrange themselves so that the commonplace becomes the significant and the routine memorable….Afterward you know that you have learned something valuable, something that can’t always describe exactly, or measured, or fully explained. But something. –Arthur Gordon-

In teching you can’t see the fruit of a day’s work. It’s invisible and remains so, maybe for twenty years. –Jaques Barquin-


Oh yes, one more thing.. I found funny notes from a kid on this book that loves his ‘very strict’ teacher. I thought before kids don’t like a strict teacher :)

That sounds like a great book! I'm trying to read two books right now and man it's hard reading two at once. LOL

Henny, that looks like a wonderful book. I was a teacher for many years and I have so many wonderful memories.
Thank you so much for your kind words on my blog. I really appreciate it!

That's a sweet title and I'm sure teachers will appreciate such a wonderful gift.
