Product Description
"Understand this clearly. You can teach a man to draw a straight line and to cut one; to strike a curved line and to carve it; and to copy and carve any number of given lines or forms, with admirable speed and perfect precision; and you find his work perfect of its kind; but if you ask him to think about any of those forms, to consider if he cannot find any better in his own head, he stops; his execution becomes hesitating; he thinks, and ten to one he thinks wrong; ten to one he makes a mistake in the first touch he gives to his work as a thinking being. But you have made him a man for all of that. He was only a machine before, an animated tool." – John Ruskin

During the day-to-day work of teaching, it's an easy thing to lose sight of the principles we hold dear.

"Gentle Reminders" are meant for one's desktop, desk, faculty lounge, staff room, work/copy room, front office, or any other location where one can get a breath and think a minute. These simple messages and pictures will remind a harried teacher of her/his real joyful motivations for working with young people, or possibly point out those truths so easy to forget.
Each ZIP file contains a .jpg and a PDF copy for use in digital media or printed as mini-posters.
