Teacher Poems

Poems for Teachers

Teachers change lives. Being the right person at the right time may be enough to change a person's life forever. People are constantly changing. Whether for the good or for the bad, we do not stay the same. Having a positive influence in the form of a teacher can make or break a human being. Years after we are out of school, we remember the teachers that changed our lives. In most cases these may have been the first people that believed in us. That experience of having an authority figure believe that we could succeed carries us forever.
