A Teacher's Prayer

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.
