I am a Teacher

I can see the hope in the eyes of every child,

From both bitter and sweet experience that I filed

Tell me who among those children are mild and wild,

With open arms I will welcome them as I smiled.


My hands are not as soft as those of princesses,

But it can wipe the tears of a child during recess

My shoulders are not that slender that a model muses

But it can definitely comfort a child in great distress


 I do not wear the latest fashion in television

But I coat myself to be a life’s model with vision

I know that they are watching my decision and action

On how I guide people and set my life into motion.

I may not look sophisticated as others put through a sieve

But with modesty and tranquility I serenely live

Great effort and genuine encouragement I sincerely give

My students full potential, I want them to achieve.

They say that “You are just a teacher”,

I smiled and answered, “But I am life’s molder.

I can touch the lives of the children I encounter.

With that, I feel blessed that I am a teacher!”

    Very encouraging to know there are still virtuous teachers like you, who passionately love teaching and molding their students. You are a fine woman in God’s eyes, you practice Christianity in your profession. I am reflecting on something while I read this poem, it’s a challenge for me once I become a parent and a teacher to my own children 🙂

      Just read your comment. Thank you so much for those humbling words. Teaching is a tiring yet very fulfilling and rewarding profession. I am just grateful that God guided me towards this direction.

      With God’s help, I know that you will become a good mother and a good teacher to your kids… 🙂
