“Middle School Teacher” – Original Nurses Poetry
“middle school teacher” is a sample of the teacher, student, and other poetry featured in my ebook, “teachers students & educational specialists“
this collection of poetry was written beginning in the early 90s, when my wife and i both presented and sold them in mall and arts shows in texas
teaching has been close to my heart since, well, spending nearly as much time with teachers growing up as being home with family. 😉
below, in a tribute to one of the more forgotten stop-points of teachers we grow up with, maybe because our elementary and high school teachers are such powerful beginning and ending points, is my poem for middle school teachers
when i focus on that time period, it is easy to see the power of that transitional time
Middle School Teacher
You see it in their faces,
Part child – part adult.
Their foundation is laid but you’re
here to smooth the edges so the new
home still being built will last.
And they don’t even know how
transparent they are.
But that’s ok, you can then comfort
the child while leading the adult –
reinforcing the good already there
then introducing all the new good
they can accept. You
are like a giant helping hand
reaching out to the students’ pasts
grabbing hold of all worth saving then
giving them an ever so friendly
push toward their futures.
