Teachers are leaders and like other leaders, they are known more by what they get others to do than by what they do themselves.

It does not matter what we teach, it matters what our students learn.

Yes, so true! Lead, follow, or get out of the way.

Good leaders don't take the credit. Their followers don't realized they were led.

Our group feels that we should change the word "do" to "understand"....meaning teachers are known more for what they help others understand, learn, or achieve....

I agree but I need to remind myself that this "reward" may be in the future not necessarily in the present.

Students who go on to excel and recognized are a direct reflection of teachers who are not recognized individually but their works are shown by the students.

This is so true. Teachers lead students to become successful. We are successful only if our students show that they are learning. If our students do well, we are successful.

I don't think of myself as a "Leader" but a facilitator in the classroom. I take risks along with my students!

They say that teaching is a thankless job. We often don't see the product of our work until our students come back to visit us!

A great teacher is forgotten. The student only remembers the process of discovery and empowerment

Teachers are facilitators and should show or explain but should not dominate the instruction.

Leaders are to lead by example. Students know what we as educators do and observe our behaviors.
