Where did all the teachers go?

“Those who educate children well are more to be honored
than they who produce them; for these only gave them life,
those the art of living well.”

― Aristotle

“One of the first things we learn from our teachers is discernment:
the ability to tell truth from fiction, to know when we have lost our center and how to find it again. Discernment is also one of the last things we learn, when we feel our paths diverge and we must separate from our mentors in order to stay true to ourselves.”

― Anne Hill, The Baby and the Bathwater

“When we become a really mature, grown-up, wise society,
we will put teachers at the center of the community, where they belong.
We don’t honor them enough, we don’t pay them enough.”

-Charles Kuralt

“Teachers are expected to reach unattainable goals with inadequate tools. The miracle is that at times they accomplish this impossible task.”

-Haim Ginott

“Well, teachers have been profoundly demoralized in recent years and are often treated with contempt by politicians. There’s a great deal of reckless rhetoric in Washington about the mediocrity of the teaching profession
- and I don’t find that to be true at all.”

-Jonathan Kozol

“Everyone who remembers his own education remembers teachers,
not methods and techniques.
The teacher is the heart of the educational system.”

-Sidney Hook

I would have thought the bears had more sense.....

Coolest president in history.

On Monday, while golfing during his Hawaiian Christmas vacation, Obama sunk a 40-foot chip shot at the 18th green of the exclusive Mid Pacific Country Club.


"The president, wearing a grey golf shirt, dark shorts, a cap and a white glove on his right hand, took his position on the fringe about 40 feet from the hole, squatted down for a better view, then took a few practice swings before chipping the ball in," Julie Hirschfeld Davis, a White House correspondent for the New York Times, wrote in a press pool report.

As the video shows, Obama victoriously drops his wedge before spinning around to point at nearby press and spectators.

"A cheer went up when he made the shot, and POTUS raised both arms in triumph, then turned and pointed in your pool's direction, in a 'You guys saw that, right?' kind of a gesture, although he didn't say a word," Davis wrote.
