John Wooden’s Poem about Teachers

“No written word

nor spoken plea

Can teach our youth

what they should be.

nor all the books

on all the shelves.

It’s what the teachers

are themselves.”

John Wooden, most winning men’s college basketball coach of all time

Remember Who We Are

We teach more with our lives than we ever could with our mouths. As teachers, we have a responsibility to not only live well but to teach well. For in living well, we do both.
