Quick Hit: The Quote of the Week

I keep web pages for each of my CHS classes.  On them is a space for notes, and I use that space for “the quote of the week.”  Only a few kids have noticed that I actually DO change the quote every week, but I do it anyway.

This week, I’m sending a pointy message.  I wonder how many of them will get it.

Those who are unwilling to invest in the future haven’t earned one.” ~H.W. Lewis

  1. I’m betting on damn near none of them. 😦

    The ones who need the lesson won’t get it, and the ones who get the lesson don’t need it.

    Funny, because I just had a similar conversation with my Trigonometry teacher about an hour ago. He’s giving an extra-credit quiz online, and he told me that the only people who do it are folks who already have a pretty good grade, and the ones who need it won’t even make an attempt.

  3. Several years ago, when I was classroom teaching (rather than administrating) I always included a quote in my weekly newsletter. I was always SO THRILLED when a parent or student would notice and comment in some way! I don’t know how much attention was ever paid, but it was MY favorite part of those newsletters.

  4. A Facebook friend of mine put a GREAT quote on her status yesterday:

    “The greater danger for most of us is not that our aim is too high and we miss it, but that it is too low and we reach it”

    – Michelangelo
