Duct Tape Quote

For 33 years, I had the pleasure of teaching English at Thatcher High School. Over time I came to enjoy writing a quote of the day on my board for students to read as they were in my classroom. Because of this practice, I was constantly on the hunt for what I considered a good quote. One of my favorites is the following by Carl Zwanzig:

"Duct tape is like the force; it has a light side and a dark side and it holds the universe together."

Certainly interpretation of a quote can be open to personal opinion. We all experience good times as well as bad. When we work together and support each other through the bad times, we are able to receive strength and perseverance as we battle challenges. Here at Thatcher Elementary, we are very grateful for the many parents and community members who give of their time to enhance our school. Many volunteer in our classrooms for art, P.E., and other additions to the curriculum. The PTO also does a great service and provides much appreciated help. We are always very appreciative of the good community support we receive as we work with our most prized possessions, the youth of our community.
