Teach me great teacher
to be just like you
perfect and proud and happy too

Teach me how to decorate
Teach me to laugh
Teach me to organize just the way you do

I want to learn from the very best
That means from you
I can learn so much from you
I can learn from others too

But there are many things that only you
can teach so well
I'd like to be just like you
** Anyone want to give me some good ideas advice. I am getting ready to make being a school teacher K-3 or 9-12th english not sure which yet. I'd love pointers and some help. My email is cantrellk@ureach.com and I have AIM and My sn there is ameeraskittles **

Thanks and Godbless

Best of luck to you, Kellie! I'm not a teacher, so I can't really give any advice, but I'm sure you'll do just fine.

God bless America, my home sweet home.

I used to be a teacher, Kellie...but that was a very long time ago....when the dinosaurs roamed the earth, and no one had computers.  I'm sure that things are very different today....but one thing I can tell you that will never change is that the best teachers treat each student as an individual, and know all of their little quirks.....I always thought that was the best and most fun part of teaching.  Another good thing I learned, was to always make your students feel like they are smart...if you do that....they will be smart.
Kids always live up...or down to our expectations of them.

I taught early elementary school, back in the sixties.....
I hope that you will enjoy it as much as I did back then.

Kellie,
I love your poem. You know how to make my day.

Lyra lied. That was a post dinasour era! And as for teaching those grades...she gave great advice. I would add, don't ever forget your own childhood and like Ginger you know the power of a positive attitude on kids and and being real.

The secret of being a great teacher? (I heard this from a very good source) is just this bit of advice:

"Remain a constant student."


Smiles to you, with gratitude...you have touched my heart. I thank you.

This is a beautiful poem. I think you will make a great teacher. Sounds to me like you had the best example of what it takes to be a wonderful teacher.

School Teacher Blues

Toerag's standing at the urinal,
He'a peeing on the wall
If he hits the radiator
We'll smell it in the hall

School Teacher Blues
You'll have them
School teacher blues
School teacher blues,
Nuthin' to lose but your pain,
And that ain't nuthin..

Yanno Toerag can't read
but what does Toerag need to know,
Look at the competition
It's the age of video

Athletes, Politicians,
Jet sets snort cocaine,
All you'll snort is chalk dust
It's blowing out your brain...

A noble education,
Tired of mediocrity,
Point your finger to the home
And you'll view hypocrisy!

Good luck with your teaching endeavors....get on your hands and knees and give thanks to God you never had me in one of your classes.....nice write
