Quote of the Week

An understanding heart is everything in a teacher, and cannot be esteemed highly enough. One looks back with appreciation to the brilliant teachers, but with gratitude to those who touched our human feeling. The curriculum is so much necessary raw material, but warmth is the vital element for the growing plant and for the soul of the child.
-Carl Jung, Swiss psychologist (1875-1961)

I do so agree with that. A good and caring teacher is worth their weight in gold. We have so many in this area that are not, that it is a pleasure when one of our children are lucky enough to get one that nurtures and encourages them.
