Teacher With A Heart - Poem by Paul Sebastian

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.

    A perfect portray of a teacher along with all of his qualities and all the things done by him for students while imparting education as also giving the requisite molding to the immature minds.
    Sir, I had penned Good Teacher after the visit of my Professor, while I was a student some 40+ years, who had flown 1000+ kms just to meet me and a couple of his collegues. I was not in touch with him for almost 40 years and we renewed communication due to his queries with my erst while friends.
