To Teach....
- --Tracey Smith Bradley, June 1998

To teach is to touch a life forever....
To teach is to see a struggling student smile...
To teach is to hear a child read a story...
To teach is to know it may take a while.

To teach is something that comes within us...
Something that grows inside your heart.
To teach is a calling that was given us...
Something that has been with you from the start.

To teach is to give enough of yourself...
To a child who needs your time and care...
To teach is to share your world with others...
So their knowledge will always be there.

To teach is to cry when a child is having troubles...
And to cry with joy when they achieve success...
To teach is to cheer them on when they are at their worst...
And to pat their back when they reach their best!

To teach is something you’ll have forever...
It will never cease or die...
For a teacher remembers each child, each face...
And holds each one dearly inside.

And though at times you may get tired...
And wonder is it all worth the strain...
You’ll remember one child who succeeded with your help...
And you know that you would do it all over again.
