Inspiring Quotes About Teachers

It's teacher appreciation week, and I can't help but think about how grateful I am for teachers and all they do! Teaching can often be one of the most rewarding, yet challenging professions. Not only do teachers put in long hours to help our children reach their full potential and growth daily, they also provide a loving and safe space for our children to thrive. The hope and faith that teachers bring into the classroom is one of the many traits that make them so special. I'm sure we all know many incredible teachers who are dedicated to inspire and educate students for success. 

In honor of this week, I compiled a list of inspiring quotes from saints about teaching as a way to celebrate all the amazing teachers out there!
