Top 5 Memorable Quotes or Comments

This will be our last week of Faculty Fridays: Daily Edition. Beginning next week, we’ll go back to weekly posts. FF@4 on Tuesdays and Thursdays will also continue through May.  

For our last five days of daily posts, we’ll be focusing on top 5’s. Today’s top 5 is memorable quotes from readers and those we have profiled since the blog began.  

  • “Teaching can be as rewarding as it is exhausting, so every opportunity for professional development is worth taking advantage of, as a way to recharge yourself while expanding your professional practice. Professional development is like the corner pieces of a puzzle: put those in place and it's easier to build the bigger picture.” ~Amanda Le Rougetel, Friday, May 3, 2019 – re: Informal and Formal Professional Development

  • “I don’t love every student, but I love the learner in every student.” ~Pamela McLeod, Friday, November 17, 2017 – re: Loving Learners

  • I think it's important to remember that for every student that tells us about the problems he/she is facing, there are others who struggle on silently with similar issues. Sometimes reaching out when we notice a change in a student is a good way to uncover these issues so that we can offer our own help and that of our institution. ~Gail Horvath, Friday, March 8, 2019 – re: Responding to Students’ Lives 

  • "No instructor is a solo act. We are stronger when we talk to each other, help each other and support each other. Every one of us has likely had negative or challenging experiences; you are not alone! The best thing I ever did for myself was say (ok, maybe I yelled with a touch of panic in my voice), "Help!". My colleagues and my chair had (and have) my back - every time." ~Amanda Le Rougetel, Friday, November 16, 2018 – re: Advice to New Instructors
