Paul Sebastian


Teacher With a Heart


A teacher with a heart is a gifted soul
Weaved together with threads of gold
A teacher touches lives of a great many
His reward is hearing a success testimony

A teacher with a heart goes into a class
Teaching beyond the lesson plans he has
Sharing his life’s experiences and lessons learned
Giving hope to live life’s best with wisdom gained

He listens intently to give a positive feedback
He keeps a keen eye on the learning steps they take.
Listens to unspoken words to fathom a heart’s needs
He earnestly cares about what and how he feeds

Like a father would, he is firm but kind
Gentle on the young impressionable minds
Mistakes are often made: he is always forgiving
Never minding their failures: he is always encouraging

He is someone a student would look up to
For his counsel, laced with love is wise and true
He often role-plays a parent but is more a friend
Modeling good values, mindful of the messages send

A teacher with a heart is one set apart
To touch lives with the love he imparts
Remembered by the touched years later
Thankful for lives turned for the better.

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Scott

The moon's on the lake, and the mist's on the brae,
And the Clan has a name that is nameless by day;
Then gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
Gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
