Thank you, Teachers

Lessons Learned

Thank you for what you taught me
and for helping me to grow.
You have expanded so much my learning
and taught me what I know.
You are someone I will never forget
Nor the lessons I have learned
For they will never be wiped clean
They’re in my memory burned.


Each day you stood before us
and gave to us your time.
You gave to us your patience
and helped expand our minds.
Thanks for what you gave me
And for what you have taught.
You helped me with the questions
For the answers I have sought.

Imparter of Knowledge

Teacher and advisor
Counselor and friend
Imparter of knowledge
Which never has an end.
All these things you were to me
And I’m thankful to this day.
I have now succeeded
And you helped show me the way.


A teacher is someone to turn to.
someone to chide and scold you.
Someone to give of their time
and help expand your mind.
Someone to assign reports
and ignore all retorts.
You were all this to me
and the truth you helped me see.
Thanks for what you’ve done
and the battles you have won.

Because of You

A teacher is a person
Who helps you every day.
Who scolds you when you’re bad
And helps you find your way.
Thanks for what you did for me,
for teaching me something new.
For I would not be here today
If it hadn’t been for you.
