Teachers Day Poem - Thank You Teacher
Written for Poetry Month
All through my years as a student, I have had great teachers who have encouraged and supported me in so many ways.
This poem is a tribute to all teachers in this world-
Laying a strong foundation,
Working hard, day after day,
With sweat on the brows,
Chalkdust on hands,
A teacher explains and explains,
Until students understand.
A teacher generously imparts,
From a teacher,
Words of wisdom do depart,
Each one precious, to be valued,
To be etched in memory,
Pondered upon, with gratitude.
A teacher always helps you out,
Encourages all those who are in doubt,
To ask questions and find out,
Break out of their shell,
Be courageous and confident,
Without any self-doubt.
A teacher instills self-esteem,
Shines a light that brightly beams,
And lights up the way,
The path to success,
Listen to your teacher,
You will be better than the best.
