One profession that truly demands one to give of oneself is teaching. I have seen teachers who put their heart and soul into shaping their students’ lives. As teacher’s day approaches, I can’t help but think of all those teachers who left an impact ,shaped my thoughts and influenced to a large extent who I eventually became. Back in school I looked up to this poised lady who taught us English ( most of us are half in love with our english teachers) .I didn’t realize how much she influenced,untill I realised I was emulating her mannerisms !!
On the eve of teacher’s day I just wanted to remember all these wonderful teachers whom I owe a lot too. here’s an ode to them ( including my dad, whose passion is teaching)
You guide, you shape and mould
blessed with a wise mind and heart of gold
You empower us to be the best we can be
You teach us to think without shackles and be free
Patience, forbearance and poise innate
You empower us to choose our fate.
