The Educator


A notable profession, enlightening minds that is.
A kind professional, despite the intense lessons you give.
An elegant personality, displaying enormous patience.
A gravitating knowledge, that’s greatly appreciated.

Teaching in areas of research and critical thinking, ways others are hesitant to do.
Imprints on my heart, your instructions prove true.
A promoter of diversity, you are a pious example of humankind.
Celebrating trust, while shaping inspired minds.

Speaking of indigenous personalities, according to my inquiring log
Countering my doubts — those smeared by a summer of fog.
An impressionable educator, how remarkable you are.
Your striking sessions of cultural inference, took me quite far.

Your challenged my findings, caused me to rethink my methods
You pushed me further, with measurable efforts.
I reflect on conversations and how your expectation of excellence forever grew.
Now I translate to others, as you said I would do.

I represent your works; I promote the science of education.
I respect the profession and the mission to enhance cognitive skills.
My practical teacher, so thoughtful and with splendor.
With graduate regards, mutual respect is rendered.
