“Non Scholae Sed Vitae Discimus” (We Learn Not for School, but for Life)

By: Eboné Lockett
As a middle school student, Eboné Lockett was introduced to a phrase that would impact her for the rest of her life: “Non Scholae Sed Vitae Discimus,” translated as, “We learn not for school, but for life.” Now a high school language arts and composition teacher, she continues to live by that mantra and encourages others to never stop learning. Eboné teaches at Cato Middle College High School in Charlotte, NC.
