'What Is A Teacher' Typographic Poem Print

Bespoke Verse

A witty and warm teacher poem that celebrates the many roles a hard working teacher performs every single day!

Our 'What is a Teacher?' A4 print makes the perfect teacher gift for the end of term. A very unique way to say thank you to a brilliant teacher.

The poem was written by award-winning Bespoke Verse poet Joanna Miller. She used to be an English teacher herself, so she knows what makes a good present. She also knows what hard work it is!

The eye-catching typographic design was the creation of Russet and Gray.

Whether the teacher in question is a trip organiser, an inspiring mentor or a corridor stalker, they will definitely feel appreciated on receiving 'What is a Teacher?'

The font choice is: dark blue, red, purple, light blue, soft taupe or black on brown.

For an additional fee, you are welcome to add a short message (max eight words) at the bottom of the poem.

We would be happy to frame the print for you using one of our two white wooden custom-made frames. We offer Smooth Flat White or Stepped Grained White.

What is a Teacher?

A walker, a talker, a corridor stalker

A leader, director & tactful corrector

A role-model, tutor, a whiz with computer

A natural persuader, a daily first-aider

A reader, a writer, reports all-nighter

A printer, protector, a problem deflector

A marker, a setter, a sender of letter

A natural orator, a known confiscator

A divider, decider, a spare pen provider

A cutter, a sticker, a fair-minded picker

A debater, relater & smile reinstater

A pairer, a carer, a lesson preparer

A defender, a lender, a broker & mender

A creator, inventor, inspiring mentor

A smiler, a filer, a stay back a while

A parent reminder, lost property finder

A keen finder-outer, & sometimes a shouter

A describer, reviser, a trip organiser

A thinker, a winker, a covered in inker

An on your sider & staff-room resider

That’s what makes a Teacher!
