"Education is the key to unlock the golden door of freedom." George Washington Carver

"A mind is a fire to be kindled, not a vessel to be filled."

" If kids come to us [educators/teachers] from strong, healthy functioning families, it makes our job easier. If they do not come to us from strong, healthy, functioning families, it makes our job more important."
Barbara Colorose

"We must be the change we wish to see in the world."
Mahatma Gandhi
