A Very Special Teacher
In recognition for your ongoing commitment and
dedicated service to struggling readers.
Your vision directly impacted the lives of so many students.
A reading teacher is like Spring,
Who nurtures new green sprouts,
Encourages and leads them,
Whenever they have doubts.
A reading teacher is like Summer,
Whose sunny temperament
Makes studying a pleasure,
A reading teacher is like Fall,
With methods crisp and clear,
Lessons of bright colors
And a happy atmosphere.
A reading teacher is like Winter,
While it's snowing hard outside,
Keeping students comfortable,
As a warm and helpful guide.
Teacher, you do all these things,
With a pleasant attitude;
You're a teacher for all seasons,
And you have our gratitude!
