Teacher’s Advice

“I always remember she said one day, ‘Don’t be scared of your hunger. If you’re scared of your hunger, you’ll just be one more ninny like everyone else.'” (pg. 195, Olive Kitteridge by Elizabeth Strout)

In this teaser, a young woman is talking about something her former teacher, Mrs. Kitteridge, said, something that really struck a chord for her. Is there any advice a teacher gave you that has really stuck with you over the years?

Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Play along. The rules are easy and I only cheated a little. Grab your current read, open to a random page, and give us two teaser sentences. Remember, no spoilers.

I borrowed my copy from the library and the above is my honest opinion. I am an Amazon associate.

  1. An advice from teachers that stucked in my head? None that I can remember of…however, a sentence in a drama called Great Teacher Onizuka remains in my head forever “I want to be teacher forever” << The same kind of feeling that I have.

    Your book sounds like a good book for me…I hope, at least, one of my advices will be remembered by my students
