(which means: 'Mister. You say you see us as your own children, but why don't you give us pocket money then?')
Mister Bart is a 30 year-old high school teacher in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. In October he started to collect all sorts of quotes of his pupils on his own Tumblr blog. The quotes varied from touching and moving quotes to the most hilarious ones.
To teach and educate
Mister Bart started his blog mainly for himself so he could not forget the great quotes of his pupils. But still, he gives all the credits for the blog to the children.'It is really all about them', he says.
Mister Bart is often seen as a father figure for the children, but he is clear in setting his boundaries. He is an involved teacher that wants to teach and educate, but he will never become actual friends with his students. This is a wonderful balance that can be an example for many teachers. Mister Bart shows he can have an honest and equivalent connection with youth, which gives him a lot of gratitude and pride in return.
