Quotes to Get You Ready for the Classroom

We all need a little motivation from time to time  - a little push to remind us we're on the right track and our work is meaningful. We collected a bit of that in the form of some words from educators and allies. We hope this collection will excite you for the back-to-school push and remind educators that this year is important. And it will be wonderful.

Enjoy. Share. Read the stories behind the words. And get ready for your best year yet.
