To: MRS. ANNE ALLRED
Teacher is nothing but our future."
--- Author Unknown --- Submitted by Helen H., Age 16 --- Utah
This I understand. When I was in 11th grade, I just hated my English teacher and a lot of kids hated her, but a lot kids just loved her. But at the end of the year, the last class we had, everyone walked out with a tear on their face. Everyone misses her a lot. Now we all walk into her class and say, "You're the best". Everyone understands that she, our English teacher, wants us to teach the future and want us to become a better person. Thank you Mrs. Allred!!!!!! A lot!!!!

Each of us limitless- each of us with his or her right upon the earth;
Each of us allow'd the external purports of the earth;
Each of us here as divinely as any is here."

In every school classroom, a student should be able to look around and see a model classroom where there are no safety or health hazards and where skilled instructors are protecting their safety and health by teaching them a professional skill on safe equipment and in a safe and healthful environment."

In the State of Minnesota, as in other states, students were being injured on unsafe machinery. This state formed the first machine guarding committee of its kind in the United States to protect young people operating machinery found in metal shops, wood shops and auto shops located in our schools. The team has conducted training for over 800 teachers in the State of Minnesota on this issue and this quote was presented to each teacher to post in the classroom. Now, many schools in the State of Minnesota, California and Washington, with technical classrooms, have adopted this saying.

For those who absolutely hate school:
Could you imagine growing up knowing nothing about how the world goes? No lessons about life? Take your average school bully. If you never get over the injuries by yourself, you aren't ever going to get tougher. "As the bamboo faces the wind, it will learn to bend." Keep that in mind."

It shows that you've tried your hardest.
But when you quit, it shows you don't even bother to try at all."
