GENERAL LIBRARY FOR TEACHERS.
• We, and the community, would look with distrust, if not with contempt, upon the man who should commence the practice of law without having in his possession a single treatise on law. Are we not, then, justified in withholding respect from one who attempts to teach without the opportunity of daily reference to the excellent works which have been prepared to aid teachers ? The teacher should have a professional library, and should replenish it yearly, as regularly as he does his wardrobe, and as liberally as circumstances will allow."— Dr. A. D. Lord, of Columbus, Ohio.
The character of schools must always depend mainly upon the character of the teachers, and the progress and improvement of the schools generally bear a direct relation to the efforts made by the teachers for their own improvement.
The teacher who is satisfied with present attainments, and whose ambition in school rises no higher than a mere repetition of past efforts, will be sure to furnish an example in which both teacher and school are constantly deteriorating.
It is the manifest duty of the teacher to strive every day to make some positive advance upon the labors of the previous day. To this end he must not only be fruitful in expedients, and assiduous in studying the character and dispositions of his different pupils, but he must also avail himself of the wisdom and experience of others who are engaged in the same work.
The study of educational works embodying the results of the best efforts of successful educators in
Teachers' Library. this and other countries, is an indispensable auxiliary to the labors of the teacher who is desirous of advancing to a high standard in his profession.
