If a doctor, lawyer, or dentist had 25 people in his office at one time, all of whom had
different needs, and some of whom didn't want to be there and were causing trouble, and
the doctor, lawyer, or dentist, without assistance, had to treat them all with professional
excellence for nine months, then he might have some conception of the classroom
~Donald D. Quinn
"There is no word in the language I revere more than teacher. My heart sings when a kid refers to me as his teacher, and it always has. I've honored myself and the entire family of man by becoming a teacher."
~ Pat Conroy, from Prince of Tides
