Why do we teach?
Because we see ourselves in you,
we live vicariously through your struggles and growth
we cheer your victories and lament your defeats
because we know one day, our tree will fall
and you will rise to tower above,
to provide shade for animals
and protection for saplings,
and in turn will enjoy the view.
So we must do what we can today
to ensure than our students’ future
will be brighter than any we ever knew.
