Positive Attitude Tip:
To be a teacher we do not have to have the profession of a teacher. And to learn we all learn by watching, and doing. As the Chinese Proverb states so well: I hear, and I forget. I see, and I remember. I do, and I understand." Hopefully our lives will be a continuous journey of learning. Learning from those around us, from mistakes made, and from teachers sharing their knowledge.

Tip #1:
The example we set in living our lives is seen and watched by young people and is mimicked by them. So remember especially around children you are teaching. Your actions, your words, and your outlook on life is all being watched.

Tip #2:
As Henry Adams once said, "A teacher affects eternity; he can never tell where his influence stops." Our teachers by profession need appreciation for their work. Share this quote with them to help them see that you appreciate all they do.
