Today is May 7th, and welcome to The Daily Quote—a podcast designed to kickstart your day in a positive way. I’m your host, Andrew McGivern, thanks for listening and if you like the show please give us a rating and review in your podcast app!

Today, we celebrate National Teachers’ Day—a day dedicated to honoring those who dedicate their lives to educating others. It’s a day to reflect on the impact that educators have on our lives and the lives of our children. In the spirit of this day, our quote is from the influential educational reformer John Dewey, who said,

“Education is not preparation for life; education is life itself.”

This profound statement captures the essence of what it means to be a teacher and the enduring impact of education. Teachers do more than just teach subjects; they teach us how to think, question, and explore the world. They instill in us not just knowledge but a thirst for knowledge. Like Dewey points out, education shapes our entire existence—it is an ongoing process that enriches our everyday experiences and interactions.

So, on this National Teachers’ Day, think about the teachers who have shaped your journey. Maybe it’s a good day to reach out with a thank you note—or if you’re feeling particularly inspired, why not learn something new in their honor? After all, embracing education as a lifelong adventure is perhaps the best tribute we can offer to the educators who have impacted our lives.

As we close today’s episode, let’s remember that education does not end in the classroom. Every day offers new lessons to learn, and every experience is an opportunity to grow. In the words of John Dewey, let us live our education and continue to learn with the same enthusiasm we had on the first day of school.

Life itself gives us an education if we are willing to learn. [Outro Music Fades In] Thank you for tuning in to The Daily Quote. I hope today’s episode inspires you to appreciate the teachers in your life and perhaps even see yourself as a lifelong student, eager to learn and grow each day.

The teachers that made the biggest difference in my education were the ones that were funny and did unexpected things in the classroom. Like this one time a couple teachers acted like pro-wrestlers and attacked my teacher in our class so he threw them out after dropping a couple elbows and then threw basketballs down the hall at them.

Those were the days… teaching outside the box. Or squared circle in this case.
