Challenge 8: Share a Quote


There are many people who inspire us as educators to continue learning, growing and be the best we can be for our students. Sharing a quote from someone that has made a difference in your educational world, can spark further inspiration, motivation and action in others. If the quote resonates deeply within us, we might not feel so isolated as educators. We know that others have similar struggles, thoughts or convictions.

Challenge 8 is about sharing one of your favorite educational quotes.

You are to create a “Word Swag”, using and image an add the words of the quote with the name of the author to it. The quote can be a citation from a book, a quote from a conversation you had with someone in person or a proverb that resonates with you.
