“No teacher lies on their deathbed and says, “I wish I’d given them more test prep.” Sending engaged readers into the world is a legacy that matters and lasts long after we are gone.”

“If you wouldn’t put your strongest readers through a computer program, please don’t put your most vulnerable readers through it.”

“What most adults will never experience in their jobs:
A student visiting them years later to say thanks for being there when nobody else was.
A parent writing an email saying you changed their child’s life & they can’t thank you enough.
That’s why being a teacher is awesome.”

“A boundless educator to me means that we are not afraid of expressing other cultures and bringing that into our classrooms. Accepting we won’t always be the experts but are willing to learn with them to create a more wholesome experience.”

“Today: A student walked in late and instead of interrogating the kid about his whereabouts and where an excuse was, the principals and secretary asked him the following:
- “Did you eat? Are you hungry?”
- “Are you okay?”
- “Is there anything we can do for you?”
This is caring.”
