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.

Does a beautiful poem tell the story of an extraordinary teacher? I’m happy to read it. I’ll follow your blog, friend.
😍 Afriant, this was inspired by my daughter’s teacher.
So important. A dedicated and loving teacher. 🙂

Good teachers deserve all the praise they get and this one speaks to all that parents and students desire to express. Well done. I hope this is Liorah’s teacher.
It is 😘
It was so lovely and my daughter would appreciate this as a grade teacher… sending it to her now. I can just feel your happy heart and your daughter skipping off to school when you write this. 💖💖
I’m the one who takes her to and picks her up ☺️
awwww my husband was on pick up and it’s imbedded in their hearts. xo 💖
As a teacher once, I find this so heartwarming, David.
💖 Punam 💖 – what [ages/subjects] did you teach?
David, I was fresh out of college and I was teaching English literature to ninth and tenth grade students.
I have so much respect for teachers. There should be more of it. You have expressed yours here beautifully.
💛 Sean 💛 – me too.
