“Teaching is a work of heart” ("Nursing is a work of heart")

"Teaching is a work of heart” (also, “Nursing is a work of heart") is a popular slogan on T-shirts, bumper stickers, posters and other items. Both “Teaching is a work of heart” and “Nursing is a work of heart” have been cited in print since at least 1995.


15 June 1905, Marietta (GA) Journal, pg. 7: 
An honest man is a work of heart as well as head.

28 July 1916, Evening News (Sault Ste Marie, MI), pg. 8, col. 1 ad:
A work of art is a work of heart.

Teaching IS a work of heart!
“Teaching is a work of heart”. That’s a slogan I had on a coffee mug that I used for many years as a classroom teacher. While teachers have come under fire for the current state of our school system, those of us in the classroom know the truth!

Teaching children is a work of heart. Last month I started to teach my little kiddo how to build these crafts for fun. He just loves it!
