I love this time of year, when we get to give extra appreciation where it is due! I encourage all educators to lift up one another this week in whatever way you can. Even an extra smile or kind word can go a long way when lifting up a colleague. I woke up this morning with this on my heart, so I wrote a little poem to encourage teachers everywhere. Enjoy!
A World Without Teachers
Desolate and gloomy things would be
No one to start the learning with the ABC’s
Barren and bland our minds would stagnate
No one to spark the thirst for knowledge that opens the gate
Uneducated and unskilled our communities would unfold
No one to continue the cycle of education, ignorance would be bold
Unlearned and unloved our kids would be left in the dust
No one to give the next generation a future to put their trust
But God in all his wisdom decided to create a group to help us all
He called them “Teachers”, and he equipped them so that our societies would never fall
Happy Teacher Appreciation Week!
