Who Do You Think You Are?

Location

Who do you think you are...Is it because you have a degree....Does that make you any better than me? Who do you think you are...Just because you make the demands...Do you think it really makes the students follow your command?...Who do you think you are? To stand so high, dressed so educated, with class... Just to go back home and sit back down on your normal ass.. What do you think you do?...Teach us about the world....Then let us go out of the classroom with nothing that will help us survive...Teacher you gotta open your eyes...Get to know your class...Inspire beyond words..Create a movement...Help those in need...Please dont allow your students to fall upon a dying breed...Teach life...Teach careers...Teach things that will benefit beyond classroom chairs...Teach future teachers...And im not talking about a PHD...Teach lessons that will help you help me...Lessons that will help me help my future students...In the classroom...At home...On the streets...Help me survive...So I wont grow hungry...I need the real skills...I need you to be able to fill... Fill me with knowledge beyond belief...Help me help you...Help you help me.

I love this poem, its very deep in meaning. It is to inspire teachers and everyone in general to help each other. We are all teachers and we all need someone to help guide us down the right paths.
