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
improves schools.”
