A Teacher's Pledge


To the DIFFICULT ones
I'll be patient
To the PAINED ones
I'll be concerned
To the FRUSTRATED ones
I'll be committed
To the IGNORED ones
I'll be accepting

To the INDIFFERENT ones
I'll be caring
To the DEMANDING ones
I'll be modeling
To the ANTISOCIAL ones
I'll be including
To the UNATTENTIVE ones
I'll be interesting

To the NEGATIVE ones
I'll be assisting
To the UNFEELING ones
I'll be reflective
To the DISTRACTABLE ones
I'll be focusing
To the UNACCEPTED ones
I'll be embracing

To the SERIOUS ones
I'll be amusing
To the UNXPERIENCED ones
I'll be enriching
To the SUBVERSIVE ones
I'll be forgiving
To the LAMENTED ones
I'll be consoling

To the OTHER ONES
I'll just assign busy-work!
