A child’s mind is not a container to be filled, but rather a fire to be kindled. Dorothea Brande
Assistant Preschool Teacher
The harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly; it is dearness only that gives everything its value. I love the man that can smile in trouble, that can gather strength from distress and grow.
