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.
