A Panegyric Poem
Thirty pairs of little eyes searching for you daily, Every morning, smiling, you welcome them gaily, Concerned enough to hold heart-to-hearts with each, Encouraging them, teaching - nothing's out of reach. Your classroom atmosphere's of kind, loving respect, Assuring young hearts, learning, yearning to connect. Their parents, confident in your wise, gentle way, Take delight in watching them skip off to school each day.
