Try one of these quotes, but make sure to give credit to the person quoted.
"A teacher affects eternity; he can never tell where his influence stops."
--Henry Brooks Adams
"Teachers, I believe, are the most responsible and important members of society because their professional efforts affect the fate of the earth."
--Helen Caldicott, author and peace activist
"The dream begins, most of the time, with a teacher who believes in you, who tugs and pushes and leads you on to the next plateau, sometimes poking you with a sharp stick called truth."
"Teachers teach because they care. Teaching young people is what they do best. It requires long hours, patience, and care."
"Compassionate teachers fill a void left by working parents who aren't able to devote enough attention to their children. Teachers don't just teach; they can be vital personalities who help young people to mature, to understand the world and to understand themselves. A good education consists of much more than useful facts and marketable skills."
"The future of the world is in my classroom today, a future with the potential for good or bad... Several future presidents are learning from me today; so are the great writers of the next decades, and so are all the so-called ordinary people who will make the decisions in a democracy. I must never forget these same young people could be the thieves and murderers of the future. Only a teacher? Thank God I have a calling to the greatest profession of all! I must be vigilant every day, lest I lose one fragile opportunity to improve tomorrow."
--Ivan Welton Fitzwater
"There's no word in the language I revere more than 'teacher.' My heart sings when a kid refers to me as his teacher, and it always has. I've honored myself and the entire family of man by becoming a teacher."
--Pat Conroy, Prince of Tides
"The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates. The great teacher inspires."
--William Arthur Ward
"The art of teaching is the art of assisting discovery."
--Mark Van Doren
"If you plan for a year, plant a seed. If for ten years, plant a tree. If for a hundred years, teach the people. When you sow a seed once, you will reap a single harvest. When you teach the people, you will reap a hundred harvests."
"There is an old saying that the course of civilization is a race between catastrophe and education. In a democracy such as ours, we must make sure that education wins the race."
--John F. Kennedy
"Better than a thousand days of diligent study is one day with a great teacher."
"The whole art of teaching is only the art of awakening the natural curiosity of young minds for the purpose of satisfying it afterwards."
"Information is the currency of democracy."
"Above all things I hope the education of the common people will be attended to; convinced that on their good sense we may rely with most security for the preservation of a due degree of liberty."
"Anyone who stops learning is old, whether at twenty or eighty. Anyone who keeps learning stays young."
"One looks back with appreciation to the brilliant teachers, but with gratitude to those who touched our human feelings. The curriculum is so much necessary raw material, but warmth is the vital element for the growing plant and for the soul of the child."
"Education is light, lack of it darkness."
"Whoever first coined the phrase 'you're the wind beneath my wings' most assuredly was reflecting on the sublime influence of a very special teacher."
"In a completely rational society, the best of us would be teachers and the rest of us would have to settle for something less."
"Be all that you can be. Find your future--as a teacher."
--Madeline Fuchs Holzer
Air force or Air national guard?
sorry, i can't tell you anything about the green card situation but if you are able to join the Air Force, i can give you some info about that
i'm in the Air National Guard now (you have to sign up for either 4 or 6 years)
in the Guard, you can use your G.I. Bill now along with Tuition Assistance (but for tuition assistance you have to commit at least 2 years to the Guard) i don't know why (probably to make them feel like you're not throwing away their money, i guess)
Active Duty - at least 4 years
when you're with your recruiter, pick a job (it'll go by your total scores if you can get the job you want), once you've picked a job, it's in place, you can also go in Open General, meaning the Air Force will pick for you.
the process is the same for all branches that i know of, when i went to MEPS in Raleigh, North Carolina, i was there with all branches. once everything was signed and i was ready to go, they sent me to MEPS, put me up in a hotel and the very next early early morning, i was at MEPS, inprocessing. you've gotta do everything there, and if you have anything like (asthma, or hearing problem, they'll kick you right out) i had used an inhaler before but never had asthma, i came very close in being sent home, i was worrying too at that time
basic training is for the same for Reserves, Air National Guard and Active Duty (you all will be in the same flight (group of airmen) everyone goes to Lackland Air Force Base, San Antonio Texas, you have no life there, just do what you're told and do not get held back, meaning do not get sick, or act up or want to go home (the quickest way to get in and out of basic training so fast is to finish it, even if you're sick, so unless you're on your death bed there, do what you can make it, the weeks will go by fast and you'll learn so much)
depends on your age, like the cut off age for Active Duty is 27 (i know cause i joined the Air Force Reserves when i was 29 but switched over to ANG) but i've wanted to go active duty since (i joined too late so i can never go active duty with the air force)
the cut off age for Reserves/ANG is 34 i think
and if you have a degree, you can go in as an officer for either active duty, reserves or air national guard
you can also go Reserves and ANG and go Active Duty later, this is true as long as you have joined by the age of 27 and as long as there is an opening for your job in it also
oh, and the difference in Reserves is that you're working for the country
the Guard is you're working for the state (governor) and country
both basically has the same stuff, i think, both have drill weekends every month which is a saturday and sunday, and the Reserves has Annual Tour (which is 2 weeks training, doesn't necessarily have to be 2 weeks straight, and you could possibly be training at another unit, another state or even country)
Guard has something similar, they just don't call their 2 weeks training Annual Tour, that I found out
also, you can go Guard, be partime, go to school, do your civilian job or even if you're part time, you can also get a full time or part time job maybe working within your unit but not be active duty (a lot of people like that because they're not forced to do PT (physical training) every other day which for active duty is Monday, Wednesday and Fridays and PT test is now every 6 months. i found out with the guard somehow, our PT test is still once a year, thank God, lol. and the one's i know who still work for the air force but aren't active duty still get the holidays off like i noticed the army has (so like this past weekend, Presidents' Day, Friday the army had the day off along with the ANG personnel but Active Duty Air Force still has to work unless it's the actual holiday. i thought that stunk, but oh well)
alright, i'm rambling now, hopefully i have helped you with some of the info, don't know much about the Active Duty side but since i was in the Reserves and in the ANG, i was able to put out some info. good luck with your green card and hope you get what you want, and thanks for being interested in the Air Force, it is a better life that i've noticed so far
