Teacher Appreciation Quotes

Usually it is in later years that we truly appreciate and realize the impact our educators have had on our lives. Those warm and sincere teacher appreciation quotations sometime like a clean and warm creek flows our past teacher’s heart:

“God understood our thirst for knowledge, and our need to be led by someone wiser; He needed a heart of compassion, of encouragement, and patience; Someone who would accept the challenge regardless of the opposition; Someone who could see potential and believe in the best in others… So He made Teachers” ~ [From Teacher Appreciation Quotes and Thank You Poems]
