5 Inspiring Quotes for Teachers to Live By

I’ve read somewhere that all of us are teachers in a way. No matter who we are, we find ourselves in a position to teach someone something. Even little children teach others. Whatever they learn, they are eager to share that new learning with others right away.

Teaching must be our natural vocation from God, the greatest Teacher of all. It is by which we help one another grow.
