I’m not a teacher yet, but I will be soon. I wanted to share a poem I wrote to being a future educator. To show everyone that teachers are passionate about what they do, they were made to do what they love, and not do it because it’s just a job.
“Some Teachers do not just teach”
Your first day of class is my first day too, everything you’re nervous about I am nervous too.
Let me show you that I can do more than just teach; I will show you more than just standing there saying a boring speech.
Together lets count and shout, and let me show you what I’m all about.
You might be scared, but I promise you I will always be there.
There to show you what’s right and to show you what’s wrong, I promise sitting in class won’t feel too long.
You might love to learn your letters, but I will do everything in my power to make math way better.
I’m not going to just teach you so you can move on to the next grade, I am going to show you what it feels like to accomplish everything with an A.
But it’s not just a good grade I’m going to make you accomplish; it’s going to be way more than just what you wished.
I’m going to show you what it feels like to fly, being able to never question why.
To grow strong and independent, humble and kind, being able to always use every bit of your time.
By the end of the year I want to watch you grow fully, and be able to be the one who stops the bully.
So listen up to my future students, with me by your side you won’t have to hide. Hide the doubts of failing, and the feeling of bailing.
We are going to rock this school year out like it’s the fourth of July, and make it so memorable you’ll miss saying goodbye.
So to my future students who I can’t wait to meet, just know it’s going to be one step at a time with your feet.
We will have good days and bad, but no matter what no one will be sad, because I will be here to direct you with all the right gears.
When summer ends, you’ll be sad they’re no more pools, but now I’m going to show you why school is so cool.
