I Am a Teacher


I Am a Teacher

I am a counselor and psychologist to a problem-filled child,
I am a police officer that controls a child gone wild.
I am a travel agent scheduling our trips for the year,
I am a confidante that wipes a crying child’s tear.
I am a banker collecting money for a ton of different things,
I am a librarian showing adventures that a storybook brings.
I am a custodian that has to clean certain little messes,
I am a psychic that learns to know all that everybody only guesses.
I am a photographer keeping pictures of a child’s yearly growth,
When mother and father are gone for the day, I become both.
I am a doctor that detects when a child is feeling sick,
I am a politician that must know the laws and recognize a trick.
I am a party planner for holidays to celebrate with all,
I am a decorator of a room, filling every wall.
I am a news reporter updating on our nation’s current events,
I am a detective solving small mysteries and ending all suspense.
I am a clown and comedian that makes the children laugh,
I am a dietician assuring they have lunch or from mine I give them half.
When we seem to stray from values, I become a preacher,
But I’m proud to have to be these people because …
I’m proud to say, “I am a teacher.”

  1. I like this. Thank you for sharing it. I am a teacher! Would you mind if I took this for my other blog (not rusty’s)?

    Of course I do not mind. Like that post I asked Rusty to borrow~this one is everywhere too! Copy and paste away!

  2. It certainly is a special person, who has the passion for being a teacher!

    Thank you!

  3. By the way, thanks to you Mer for your dedication to kids. Thanks for caring enough to be a teacher and all the parts you must play. It is one thing to be a mom and do all those things but to do all those things for other people’s kids is so very special. And how much more special are special needs teachers…God bless all teachers!

    Thank you so much! We now have a special needs pre-school at our school. It’s right across the hall~I just love those children. I think that would be fun to do too! You need to fill me in on your love for autism info~not sure if I know the story. Family member? or just interested? WOOF!

  4. Mer, thank you for everything you do! Your the best!!

    You’re Welcome! No~You’re the best! Thank YOU! LYMI! WOOF!
