The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates. The great teacher inspires. -William A. Ward

2013-2014 Excellence Teacher Award

Who has inspired you during your Honolulu Community College career?

Is there a teacher that you would like express your gratitude, because without them, you wouldn’t be moving on to bigger and better things?

Does it feel good when someone says to you, “You did a great job,” or “I appreciate you”?

Doesn’t it make you want to work even harder?

And doesn’t it feel equally as good to tell someone how they made an impact in your life?

Why is it easy to find time to complain about a bad teacher, but not as easy to find time to praise one?

A good teacher is like a candle: it consumes itself to light the way for others. -Anonymous
