I want to thank Chey (Cheryl Oertli) for this guest post and her wonderful poem The Teacher.
He's a teacher, a master of wisdom,
Bestowing knowledge to those in his charge;
Molding young minds, a planter of seeds,
With a career, larger than large.
With each seed of knowledge he has planted,
It's a blessing to watch each student grow;
Proud to shape the future of young minds,
From the land of the lost to the land of the know.
He's a teacher, caring and compassionate,
The kind of teacher you long for in September;
One who enjoys the challenge of his job,
A stellar teacher, the kind students remember.
He has come a long way from the days of his youth,
Accepting the challenges, achieving his goal;
He's a teacher, a guardian of wisdom,
From the catacombs of his mind to the depths of his soul.
