The above quote, Nelson Mandela, specifically stands out to me as I used this quote within my application essay to get into the UofR Education Faculty.
I believe that “education is the most powerful weapon” on earth because when someone is educated, they will have the motivation to “change the world” and make a difference/positive contribution to society. I believe as a primary educator, my job is an important role in society, as I will be teaching my students the important of basic behaviours and actions such as respect, sharing, and helping others. If young children learn from an early age to grasp these concepts, they will be able to use these skills throughout their whole life!
All these quotes stood out to me and are things that I consider living by as a future Teacher.
