"The Ripple Effect" Teacher Poem Ideas:

Congratulations On Your Retirement

The Ripple Effect

Drop a pebble in the water: in a minute you forget,
But there’s little waves a-flowing and there’s ripples circling yet,
And those little waves a-flowing to a great big wave have grown;
You’ve disturbed a mighty river just by dropping in a stone.

For the thousands of pebbles you have dropped in the water,
the ripples are endless!

Your students will forever take a part of you into their futures
 and your friends a part of you in our hearts.

Teachers lead students into meaningful pathways in their lives. The ripples he/she creates through the students are expanding by the day …

Some people come into our lives and quickly go.

Some people move our souls to dance.

the passing whisper of their wisdom.

Some people make the sky more beautiful to gaze upon.

They stay in our lives for awhile,
leave footprints on our hearts,
and we are never the same.

Congratulations on Your Retirement!

the growing plant and for the soul of the child.”
