A writer-editor-teacher’s quote of the week #160

I don’t know how to motivate kids, I don’t think. Some get motivated by what I do and some don’t. If I knew how to do it, I would motivate them all.

– statement made by Taft High School teacher Jerry Patt to NPR’s Ira Glass, published in the “1994” section of Listening to America: Twenty-Five Years in the Life of a Nation, as heard on National Public Radio, edited by Linda Wertheimer
