Mister Rogers and Back-To-School


Here is a wonderful post on teaching from that excellent teacher, Jennie!

A Teacher's Reflections

It’s back-to-school week for teachers.  We’re moving across the street to a new location for one year while our school building will undergo a long overdue renovation.  Moving is hard.  Starting a new school year is hard.  We’re in our same neighborhood, and we needed Mister Rogers.  Really.  His words were empowering and comforting.

In the words of Mister Rogers…

“Anyone who does anything to help a child in his life is a hero to me.”

“In every neighborhood, all across the country, there are good people insisting on a good start for the young, and doing something about it.”

“Imagining something may be the first step in making it happen, but it takes the real time and real efforts of real people to learn things, make things, turn thoughts into deeds or visions into inventions.”

Thank you, Mister Rogers.  Your words of wisdom are just what teachers need.
