Happy Teachers' Day 2012

A Teacher for All Seasons

A teacher is like Spring,
Who nurtures new green sprouts,
Encourages and leads them,
Whenever they have doubts.
A teacher is like Summer,
Whose sunny temperament
Makes studying a pleasure,
Preventing discontent.
A teacher is like Fall,
With methods crisp and clear,
Lessons of bright colors
And a happy atmosphere.
A teacher is like Winter,
While it's snowing hard outside,
Keeping students comfortable,
As a warm and helpful guide.
Teacher, you do all these things,
With a pleasant attitude;
You're a teacher for all seasons,
And you have my gratitude!

By Joanna Fuchs

God Made Teachers 

God understood our thirst for 
Knowledge, And Our Need To Be Led 
By someone wiser; 
He needed a heart of compassion, 
Of encouragement, and patience; 
Someone who would accept 
The Challenge Regardless Of The 
Someone who could see potential 
And believe in the best in others . . . 
So he made teachers
