Who Are You? I Really Wanna Know!

Teacher Appreciation by slacker12

I am a teacher and learner.
I wonder if I’m making a difference.
I hear children laughing.
I see smiles on happy faces.
I want to be effective.
I am a teacher and learner.

I pretend to have it figured out.
I feel the excitement of summer approaching.
I touch a stack of ungraded papers.
I worry about test results.
I cry about things for which I have no control.
I am a teacher and learner.

I understand my students’ needs.
I know they can learn.
I dream of freedom from unreasonable expectations.
I try remain positive.
I hope I never lose my passion.
I am a teacher and learner.

– K. Renae P.
