To all educators out there: Happy Teachers' Day :)
A Teacher's Prayer
(by Jill Wolf)
I want to teach my students more than lessons in a book;
I want to teach them deeper things that people overlook--
The value of a rose in bloom,
its use and beauty, too,
A sense of curiosity to discover what is true;
How to think and how to choose the right above the wrong,
How to live and learn each day and grow up to be strong;
To teach them always how to gain in wisdom and in grace,
So they will someday make the world a brighter, better place.
Let me be a friend and guide to give these minds a start
Upon their way down life's long road,
then I'll have done my part.
