What is a Teacher?

A wiper, a blower, an everything knower

A listening ear, a calm refereer

A reader, a writer, reports all-nighter

A printer, protector, a problem deflector.

A marker, a setter, a sender of letter

An assessor, a planner, a maker of banner

A natural orator, a known confiscator

A divider, decider, a spare clothes provider.

An artist, a potter, a lace unknotter

A sticker, a tricker & fair-minded picker

A debater, relater & smile reinstater

A pairer, a carer, a costume preparer.

A defender, a lender, a broker & mender

A creator, inventor, inspiring mentor

A smiler, a filer, a stay back a whiler

A parent reminder, lost property finder.

A keen finder-outer, & sometimes a shouter

A walker, a talker, a corridor stalker

A play director, a tactful corrector

A designer & baker, a help with mistaker.

A role-model, tutor, a whiz with computer

A natural persuader, a daily first-aider

A describer, reviser, a trip organiser

A weigher, displayer, a patient game player

A thinker, a winker, a covered in inker (removed if a message is added)

An on your sider & staff-room resider (removed if a message is added)

That’s what makes a Teacher!
