The best teachers one can find
Open the student’s eager mind.
The teacher will also show
Things that pupils need to know.
Good teachers instill sound values
Along with the knowledge one can use:
Like being kind and compassionate,
And never others to really hate.
Teachers aren’t there just to teach
Or from a pedestal loftily preach.
They act as caring guide and loving friend
Who to the world their students send.
The good they’ll do no one can tell:
They’ll surely serve their people well.
Much of the good a generation does
Is due to the teachers who made it thus.
