In fact it has been 9 long years that I haven’t practice this very first passion of mine. Yes, you read it right, I am about to embark once again the journey of this humble profession of teaching.

I searched the internet, looked for books, asks fellow teachers on all the new trends and methodology of educating the young minds of today and indeed they’ve all delivered. But what has captured my heart are those inspiring quotes I’ve encountred during those journeys.

So, allow me to inspire you as well with these quotes.
