The Greatest Inspirational
Teacher Quotes

On this page you will find the greatest Inspirational Teacher Quotes.

My life has been blessed with some amazing teachers. Those rare individuals who truly inspire learning. Great teachers do more than prepare you to pass a test. They light a fire within that burns with curiosity, passion, and guidance towards self empowerment.

Memorizing and regurgitating facts is a skill that will help you get good grades, get into a good college, and most likely get a good job. Wisdom is not found in facts and it can't be memorized, but a good teacher can help a student to find it on their own.

While knowledge is important to make a living, wisdom is necessary to make a life.

These inspirational quotes are a big thank you to every teacher who's taken the time to empower their students to think for themselves and question what's commonly accepted as fact. Those two lessons are the foundation of creating a happy and successful life.
