Exemplary teachers are not gifted...

"Exemplary teachers are not gifted; they are just more prepared and more willing to do what it takes. They conscientiously succeed on purpose."  Robert John Meehan
"The sequester caused flight delays and Congress fixed that within a week. They slash $3 billion from education and Congress goes on recess?" Robert John Meehan

"The quality of an exemplary teacher is demonstrated by their willingness to set/maintain the highest standards for themselves/students." Robert John Meehan

We should all be asking "What did you ask at school today?" Robert John Meehan

"I seldom needed to encourage my students to follow their dreams, I simply gave my students the tools and as much freedom as they needed to chase after them." Robert John Meehan

"There are some teachers out there who will tell you that you can't reach all of them. What you've got to do is turn around and say 'watch me now'." Robert John Meehan

"The whole being of any Teacher is within our own hearts. Although an education prepares us to teach, it is the love of learning that sustains us." Robert John Meehan

"Strive to be  remembered as that teacher that constantly aimed for the exemplary, that never settled for the mediocre and that invariably taught with a limitless passion and vigor.  By having accomplished this, you will most certainly have made this world a far far better place for a great many of our young people." Robert John Meehan
