If a child is to keep alive this inborn sense of wonder he needs the companionship of at least one adult who can share it, rediscovering with him joy, the excitement and the mystery of the world we live in.

EDUCATION – If I Could Teach You, Teacher

If I could teach you, teacher

I’d teach you how much more

you have accomplished

than you think you have.

I’d show you the seeds

you planted years ago

that are now coming into bloom.

I’d reveal to you the young minds

that have expanded under your care,

the hearts that are serving others

because they had you as a role model.

If I could teach you, teacher,

I’d show you the positive effect

you have had on me and my life.

Your homework is

to know your value to the world,

to acknowledge it, to believe it.

Thank you, teacher.
