Teacher Poem

A Teacher Makes Students Better People

It was her last day in school! She was retiring! On one hand I was feeling bad, for I had to witness this woeful situation. And on the other, I was feeling blessed to be known as one of her last batch of students. My eyes were filled with tears and my heart with gratitude. Then my feelings compelled me to write this poem. JUST FOR YOU, ANJU MAM!
