Why Do We Teach?

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.
