One of the first projects AES teachers did was add a quote wall, featuring a photograph of each school employee with a quote the employee chose. A sampling follows:

Shelley Smith

“When you love and laugh abundantly, you live a beautiful life.”

Cathy Powell

“Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand.” (Albert Einstein)


Angie Bowden

“You’re never too old, too wacky, too wild, to pick up a book and read to a child.” (Dr. Seuss)


Angela Sims

“People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but they will never forget how you made them feel.” (Maya Angelou)


Christy Clanton

“When someone does something wrong, don’t’ forget about all the things they did right.”(Toby Mac)


Nancy Wilson

“Life is like a camera … Focus on what’s important; capture the good times; develop from the negatives, and if things don’t work out, take another shot.”


Garrett Windham

“Promise to be just as enthusiastic about the success of others as you are about your own.” (John Wooden)


Jane Ricks

“The biggest compliment you can give a child is to accept them just the way they are. Your job is not to change who they are, but instead to give t hem the ability to be the best they can be by who YOU are in their life.”


Courtney Crews

“Wake up every morning with the thought that something wonderful is going to happen.”
