8: Teacher"s Prayer I want to teach my students how To live this life on Earth To face its struggles and its strife And improve their worth Not just the lesson in a book Or a how the river flows But how to choose the proper path Wherever they may go To understand eternal truth And know right from wrong And gather all the beauty of A flower and a song For if I help the world grow In wisdom and in grace Then I shall feel that I have won And I have Filled my place And so I ash your guidance, God That I may do my part For character and confidence And Happiness of heart. ~James J. Metcalf | Ms. Romano, You exemplify this poem, then, now, and in the future! God Bless! Ms. Kimberly Woerner 2010-2011 PRe-K
