If I could have one job, it would be to show the world
how to use their education to turn straw into gold.
I would teach children how count on their fingers and their toes.
I would tell them why the firefly glows.
I would use my knowledge to give the next generation power.
I would help them create beauty by painting or planting a flower.
To be that kind of teacher I first must learn myself.
It wouldn't be about fame and it wouldn't be about wealth.
I would be in school much longer but it would be worth it.
Being an elementary level teacher would definitely be perfect.
With children by my side, only I can guarantee,
I am building the future.
The future is being built by me.
