Susan T. Aparejo Poems
Hero In The Classroom
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 ...
The long walk,
the struggling individual,
yoking all the burden,
humiliation and belittling
heart's the secret of survival,
days, months, years of tiresome,
it almost reach the desired road.
