This week’s challenge was to read a poem. Several of our pupils have been writing and reading their own compositions in class. Others have brought in ones that they’ve enjoyed reading at home. Here’s one that someone brought in for the teachers!
A Teacher’s Poem
Every day you greet your students with a smile upon your face.
Though paperwork the night before seemed like a grueling race.
Money’s not your motivation, it’s the love for what you do.
You hear that special calling to which you always will stay true.
Your students are your dedication, devotion is to them.
To you each child’s unique and special, a beautiful little gem.
Some days are just demanding and frustration takes its course.
Then you see those little faces, their inspiration is your force.
Each day you’re in your classroom reminds you why you’re there.
Making differences in children’s lives with whom your heart you share.
There’s a special pride in teachers, and a love for what you do.
An appreciation’s always shared between those little lives and you!
