Inspirational Quotes

This week’s blog focuses on inspirational quotes! I have been asked to provide these to parents for encouragement to their graduates and to students as they embark on new horizons!

Most of these remind me of the components of the Profile of the South Carolina Graduate . I hope you find these appropriate for this exciting time of the year in education.

Have a great week!
