Hero In The Classroom - Poem by Susan T. Aparejo

A simple being, hero in the classrooms,
Pen and lesson plans are his tools
In imparting knowledge to his learners
a father/ mother of almost sixty.

Teaching children of not his blood,
Nurturing then of knowledge flood,
Burning midnight candles,
Doesn't matter all,
their achievements are his goal.

Addressing different learning styles,
With various teaching aids on files,
Preparing a friendly atmosphere,
Even none from his relatives care.

The forgotten hero in the classroom,
Toiling overtime forgetting time,
You wonder he is paid under time,
Job unrecognized, being late recognized.

Shock absorber of children's home dilemma,
Protector of children's right,
One lose footing is and err to faulty eyes,
the blame of one, an eraser of myriad works.

He is a hero, the invincible child's dream designer,
His music is the melodious children's laughter,
His destiny is to deal a challenge every year,
His joy is the star of diploma in each students' finger.

    'His music is the melodious childrens laughter' - what a beautiful phrase. An awe inspiring piece, that everyone, particularly us westerners, should read to open all those blind eyes...
    Brilliant, brilliant, brilliant.

    Great poem, props to great teachers, I have been a teacher myself, so that is very inspiring. Sometimes you don't feel like you are making a positive difference in the classroom, but if one is pure in their intentions, it always gets through to the kids. My class was a testimony to that. My students still remember me years after I went. (Report) Reply
