Title: A Teacher's Day of Hope
Always teach with hope in the children.
Because if not this time, then in some distant future,
they will need it, they will respond to it.
Leave behind heart prints for them to remember you.
Freely give your patient love, compassion,
kindness and understanding to them.
All these good things, if not now, will later take root in them
But you need to provide the seeds first.
As time goes on, you plant more seeds.
These gifts of life will grow into trees,
and spread far beyond you.
But it must begin with you first.
Eventually they will spread so far,
they cannot but return to you.
Sow well, sow hopefully.
So in the presence of the children,
live each moment and speak each word,
think each thought and take each action
as if it will come back to you.
For they surely do,
it will surprise you,
because it will be bigger than
you could ever imagine.
Teacher's Day will keep getting better
