A teacher will do her best
To give us knowledge that we need.
To be planted in solitude and cultivate.
For it will serve a treasure in our lives.
A teacher will relate and share
To us her experiences and memories
To give awareness the challenges of life,
And the morale lessons they learned.
A teacher explain, demonstrate and inspire
Explanation, that leaves no gap,
Demonstration, that shows true performance
Inspiration, that gives hope and faith.
A teacher will always guide us
From childhood to adulthood,
With love and encouragement
For it will build confidence and happiness.
And a teacher will be a helping hand
In the absence of our parents
Just to feel the comfort of life
And the world safe to live in.
