“After my parents separated, my mom raised her five kids alone in a local public housing development. She was relentless in encouraging us all to do our best in school, saying that education was our way out of the poverty that surrounded us. She was absolutely right! The education I received in Nashville’s public schools prepared me to earn my undergraduate and graduate degrees and has been vital to my success.”
Davidson County Clerk
"The whole purpose of education is to turn mirrors into windows."
- Sydney J. Harris (1917 – 1986, American journalist)
“My English teacher, Mrs. Marshall had very high expectations for our class, but she loved her job and always brought enthusiasm and passion to the classroom. As a high school English teacher myself, I tried to bring that same level of commitment to the classroom.”
