Because I Teach - Poem by Rich Reitz

Children are the future.
Learning is essential.
That is what I preach.
Because I teach.

My fervent wish is that
No child shall be left behind.
An education meant for each.
Because I teach.

My goal is to take them
As far as they can go;
As high as they can reach,

BECAUSE I TEACH.

Dedicated to Donna Heim and the faculty of the Danville Area Middle School;

    Learning is very essensial. I was a teacher someday and giving all your knowledge is unvaluable (Report) Reply
