Education is a shared commitment between dedicated teachers, motivated students and enthusiastic parents with high expectations.
A master can tell you what he expects of you. A teacher, though, awakens your own expectations.
We should have high expectations of our children, but politicians should not tell teachers how to meet them.
But in any case, I did poorly on the tests and so, in the first three years of school, I had teachers who thought I was stupid and when people think you're stupid, they have low expectations for you.
I'm not in this world to live up to your expectations and you're not in this world to live up to mine.
A teacher affects eternity; he can never tell where his influence stops.
