I used to have a little quote sign hanging by my desk that my P gave us at a meeting long ago—but I’ve lost it over the years. It had a quote I can’t quite recall—something about not getting mad when students interrupt you from your work, because students are the work—something to that effect.

Does that ring any bells?

I've had some luck finding quotes I can't remember by "Googling" key words. I tried that and found this:

"A Student is the most important person ever in this school...in person, on the telephone, or by mail.

A Student is not dependent on us...we are dependent on the Student.

A Student is not an interruption of our work..the Student is the purpose of it. We are not doing a favor by serving the Student...the Student is doing us a favor by giving us the opportunity to do so.

A Student is a person who brings us his or her desire to learn. It is our job to handle each Student in a manner which is beneficial to the Student and ourselves.”


It's attributed to William W. Purkey.
