Our Teachers

Those who served as teachers at The Harlem Academy School were the cornerstone of the institution.


Teachers Are A Gift

The best teachers teach from the heart, not from the book.  ~Author Unknown

The task of the excellent teacher is to stimulate "apparently ordinary" people to unusual effort.  The tough problem is not in identifying winners:  it is in making winners out of ordinary people.  ~K. Patricia Cross

In teaching you cannot see the fruit of a day's work.  It is invisible and remains so, maybe for twenty years.  ~Jacques Barzun
