A teacher is the greatest creative artist there is! | Edward Hyatt

 “A teacher is the greatest creative artist there is! … A teacher’s raw material lives and breathes, reproduces its kind, passes on what it learns – generation after generation – to the end of all time!”

 

“Farming or Teaching, there’s a lot to be learned.
They’re a lot alike.

Planting good, viable seeds in fertile soil is the same operation, essentially,
..as planting knowledge and ideas in the receptive minds of children.

There’s a time that’s just right for the planting and a method that’s right for the cultivating.
The farmer fights insects, weeds, frost and hail—he has a thousand hazards—and
The Teacher fights superstition, idleness, disinterested parents, and all the rest of it.
But either of ‘em can learn the technique of fighting and can make a good crop.
Whether it’s plants or whether it’s children.
They both have the gift, the infinite capacity for growing.”
