There are three good reasons to be a teacher - June, July, and August.
The whole purpose of education is to turn mirrors into windows.  
~Sydney J. Harris~

If there were no schools to take the children away from home part of
the time, the insane asylums would be filled with mothers.  
~Edgar W. Howe~

The ink of the scholar is more sacred than the blood of the martyr.  
~Prophet Mohammed~

The mediocre teacher tells.  The good teacher explains.  The
superior teacher demonstrates.  The great teacher inspires.
~William Arthur Ward~

Live as if you were to die tomorrow; learn as if you were to live
forever."
~Mohandas Gandhi~
It was the first day of school. As the principal made his rounds, he heard a terrible commotion coming from one of the
classrooms.
He rushed in and spotted one boy, taller than the others, who seemed to be making the most noise.

He seized the lad, dragged him to the hall, and told him to wait there until he was excused.
Returning to the classroom, the principal restored order and lectured the class for half an hour about the importance of
good behavior.

"Now," he said, "are there any questions?"

One girl stood up timidly. "Please sir," she asked, "May we have our teacher back?   
Toddler's Creed

If I want it, it's mine.
If I give it to you and change my mind later,
it's mine.
If I can take it away from you,
it's mine.
If I had it a little while ago,
it's mine.
If we are building something together,
all of the pieces are
mine.
If it looks like mine, it's mine.
If it's mine it will never belong to anyone else,
no matter what !
Just Playing

When I'm building in the block room,
Please don't say I'm "Just Playing."

For, you see, I'm learning as I play;
About balance and shapes.
When I'm getting all dressed up,
Setting the table, caring for the babies,
Don't get the idea I'm "Just Playing."

For, you see, I'm learning as I play;
I may be a mother or a father someday.
When you see me up to my elbows in paint,
Or standing at an easel, or molding and shaping clay,
Please don't let me hear you say, "He is Just Playing."

For, you see, I'm learning as I play.
I'm expressing myself and being creative.
I may be an artist or an inventor someday.
When you see me sitting in a chair
"Reading" to an imaginary audience,
Please don't laugh and think I'm "Just Playing."

For, you see, I'm learning as I play.
I may be a teacher someday.
When you see me combing the bushes for bugs,
Or packing my pockets with choice things I find,
Don't pass it off as "Just Play."

For, you see, I'm learning as I play.
I may be a scientist someday.
When you see me engrossed in a puzzle,
Or some 'plaything' at my school,
Please don't feel the time is wasted in "Play."

For, you see, I'm learning as I play.
I'm learning to solve problems and concentrate.
I may be in business someday.
When you see me cooking or tasting foods,
Please don't think that because I enjoy it, it is "Just Play."

I'm learning to follow directions and see differences.
I may be a chef someday.
When you see me learning to skip, hop, run, and move my body,
Please don't say I'm "Just Playing."

For, you see, I'm learning as I play.
I'm learning how my body works.
I may be a doctor, nurse or athlete someday.
When you ask me what I've done at school today,
And I say, "I Just Played."

Please don't misunderstand me.
For, you see, I'm learning as I play.
I'm learning to enjoy and be successful in my work.
I'm preparing for tomorrow.
Today, I'm a child and my work is play.
I TRIED TO TEACH MY CHILD WITH BOOKS;

HE GAVE ME ONLY PUZZLED LOOKS.

I TRIED TO TEACH MY CHILD WITH WORDS;

THEY PASSED HIM BY OFTEN UNHEARD.

DESPAIRINGLY, I TURNED ASIDE;

"HOW SHALL I TEACH THIS CHILD," I CRIED?

INTO MY HAND HE PUT THE KEY,

"COME," HE SAID, "PLAY WITH ME."
Twas the night before school started,
When all through the town,
The parents were cheering.
It was a riotous sound!
By eight, kids were washed
And tucked into bed...
When memories of homework...filled them with dread!

New pencils, new folders, new notebooks, too!
New teachers, new friends...their anxiety grew!
The parents just giggled when they learned of this fright
And shouted upstairs-...

GO TO BED-IT'S A SCHOOL NIGHT!
George W. Bush in Third Grade
George W. Bush was giving a third-grader a lesson on politics. First he asked the kid to write "The President" on the
blackboard.
Then Bush asked the child what he thought the President should accomplish and the child replied, "Protect the
environment and clean up the air."

Dubya countered, "Why should the clouds be white and the water be blue when they could be all kinds of cool colors? Is
that so terrible. Can't we agree on it? Can you spell "Is" and "We"?

The boy spells out "Is" then "We" on the blackboard.

"My friends at the oil companies can make chemicals to make trees tall. If fact, they already did. Can you write, "tall" and
"did"?

The boy writes the words on the blackboard.

"Now young man, what have you learned from your talk with the President?"

The boys stands up and reads what he has written on the blackboard aloud:

"The President is we tall did."


                                                                                                               Did you get it ??
Why was the
cross-eyed teacher fired?
She couldn't control her pupils!
Kids excited on the first day of school.
( or maybe they had a really sugary cereal for breakfast! )
This is something you will normally see during school days.
It is a pain to be stuck behind a school bus, especially if you are running late.
But dont pass it while lights are flashing. It means children are getting on or off
the bus.

Trust me , you dont want to start your day with a heavy fine for breaking this law.
Ok...this is something I hope you wont see normally. ( or at all ! )
I am sure the little kid is enjoying the free ride
while the others are 'working' the bus.
Can you count how many are in
there??
I am sure they can squeeze in
one more .
I bet they are just pretending to be happy for the camera.
( notice their hair oiled and neatly combed. I wonder how long that will last. )
" Maybe if I hang on really tight to my back pack,
I wont fall off ."
"Why did I stay up late to watch TV?
Didnt finish my homework, and
feeling sleepy too."
Bull-powered School Bus??



Wonder what they must be learning
in school...
Aah..now the donkey wants in on the
business too...
Back to School in China
Going back to school in China is no joke.  A bridge is to be built in a
Chinese village where children are forced to cross a raging torrent on
a steel cable to get to school.

Nearly 500 children, from Maji village in Fugong town, Yunnan
province, cross the most dangerous stretch of the Nujiang River each
day.  They fasten themselves to the cable with a metal carabineer and
a rope and slide across the 200 metre wide canyon, reports the
Beijing News.
The youngest student, A Qia, 4, has to go over by herself each day. 'I have to hand
walk for about 60 metres, since my light weight makes me stop about two thirds of
the way across,' she said. The villagers say that usually four-year-old children are
taken by their parents, and begin to go by themselves from the age of five.

A Pu, 5, who was stuck in the middle of the cable for nearly 20 minutes once, told
reporters, 'I used to dream of having a bridge, but then I learned that my dream
was too expensive.'  However, officials have finally agreed to spend £35,000 on a
bridge after a TV programme was made about the children's dangerous
daily journey.
