Teaching quotes make learning process interactive
Many educational quotes have been taught to us right since our childhood, especially in our school and by
our teachers. We may have f ound them interesting, inspirational and also boring at times (if we had to learn
them by heart!), still we all will accept the f act that these quotes and sayings have been so deep-rooted in
our minds and hearts that hardly do we ever f orget them.
Teaching quote f or teachers have been used as an aid to teaching f or a long period now, and in f act f orm
the basis f or primary education. Inspirational words spoken by great people subconsciously inculcate good
values and ethics in children. Schools are like watering ground f or children, as the teachings given here help
students to grow and develop. At this young age, children absorb whatever is taught to them very quickly
Hence, it is important f or teachers that their students are taught the best of everything. Quotations and
success stories of great people theref ore help a great deal to instill the required set of values and ethics in
Why teachers quote others’ sayings
Great people become so because they f ollow certain principles
and ideas of their own. Hence, what they say is of great
importance, simple because it is their experience and hard work
that speaks. When teaching about values like honesty, dedication,
loyalty, smartness, truth, good and bad, etc, it is easier if the
students learn success stories and quotes f rom successf ul
For example, f or truth and honesty, teachers may quote the
sayings of Abraham Lincoln. T he benef its of teaching quotes f or
teachers include the cultivation of basic set of values and ethics
in students. Moreover, it helps them cultivate and shape the
minds of the children.
Importance of teaching quotes
“Life is either a daring adventure or nothing.” T his otherwise
unheard of a quote by Helen Keller was told to me by my prof essor in my eighth standard. I was 13 then,
just on the verge of teenage, brimming with rebellion, enthusiasm and literally – I was like the raging sea. I
had ideas, wishes and ambitions that I can readily relate to great quotes about teaching.
But they were all so mixed up together that I f ound it dif f icult to contain them. T he resultant reaction was
that of anger and impatience everywhere in my behavior. Seldom would it be that I never lost my temper,
even at the slightest of things and situations. My teacher knew that I had potential. I was a natural athlete,
average at academics and good at extra-curricular activities.
T his combination was “dif f erent” as quoted about teaching and other subjects by my then English
prof essor. She was the one who took me under her wing, told me about Helen Keller and told me about
containing and channelizing my energies and thoughts. Helen Keller could not see, speak or hear. Yet she
had so much enthusiasm and f ighting spirit in her. For a girl like her, saying that lif e is an adventure was so
I knew I had all my senses intact, all I had to do was channelize energies which were lying latent thus f ar.
With my teacher’s help and some highly inspirational quotes f or teacher and my own commitment, I did that.
In two years, I realized that I had become much more peacef ul and happy than bef ore, and also excelled in
my sports and academics.
Moreover, my impatience and anger were replaced by calmness, self -conf idence and self -respect. I do
theref ore believe that this one quotation about lif e and several other quotes about teaching children (which
undeniably is one f rom highly productive education quotes f or teachers) really brought about a good
change into my teenage lif e.
Inspirational f or students
Choosing and inspirational teaching quotes help a
great deal in making the students realize that they
too can do what great people have done. Examples
of achievers and their way of teaching inspiration
quotes to others on dif f erent real lif e situations
inspire students to become creative and keep trying
with novel ideas to go about an assignment.
For example, f or an activity as simple as climbing a
tree, where every child f alls at start, one can simply
teach a kid quotes on teaching. “Try Try, but do not
cry” and several quotes about teaching and other lif e
scenarios which can encourage the child to keep
