Pushing The Pencil

Pushing The Pencil

Published by Xlibris
From the essays…

“Teachers must learn how to push the pencil, effecting
ease and simplicity out of hard learning that leaves a
deep and permanent impression upon youthful
thought.”

“Having high expectations is laudable but woefully
inadequate for overcoming the disparities that lurk in
the deep recesses of our broad domain.”

“More teaching, whether good or bad, is lost
somewhere between class and lunch than could ever
be recovered from one year to the next.”


“The best lessons taught end up at the dinner table,
not at the end of the period.”

“That teaching is as much an addiction as it is a
profession need not be elaborately urged.”

“ Teachers though born must nevertheless be made
and remade.”

“Schools do not improve teaching; teaching improve schools.”
