One more thing on a personal note . . .

Several years ago I was asked to open a new middle school in the district in which I was an administrator. I asked each staff member to identify the traits he/she felt made him/her successful, then we met together and distilled these traits into six principles that became the basis of our character education program and our school culture.

I'd like to share them with you here, because these simple principles are universal in their application, and are, in fact, the essence of our Great Quotes Library and Teacher Quotes Library community.

Treat others as you want to be treated
Be responsible for your choices; learn from your mistakes and successes
Be honest; have personal integrity
Do the best you can with what you have
Give more than you expect to get
Turn your dreams into goals and make them happen

This website is dynamic; please help us build it

Personal growth is an individual journey, but it need not be a solitary one.    Wisdom is meant to be shared and discussed;  that's why Great Quotes Library and Teacher Quotes Library exist, and that's why we're glad you're here.
