I Understand

Location

I raise my hand, you call on me.
I ask a question, you answer me.
I need help, you help me.

We don't do our homework, you lecture us.
We don't pay attention, you make us.
We don't remember assignments, you remind us.

Other kids hate you for it.
Other kids think you're mean.
Other kids don't understand.

Not me.
I understand.
You're not like other teachers.
You care.

Other teachers make me feel stupid.
Other teachers don't care.
Other teachers don't understand.

Not you.
You understand.
You're not like other teachers.
You care.

Thank you.
Thank you for helping me understand.
