A poem for retiring or retired teachers. I pray they will never forget the difference they made while members of their profession.

This poem is dedicated, with love, to my two favorite retired teachers, Mrs. Regina Chaney and Mrs. Sharon Needham.




For years, your guidance held the key
To the potential in young minds
You showed your students they could be
Successful members of mankind
You gave them, through your love and care
The greatest gift they could receive
You taught them how to work and share
But, most of all, how to believe.


Each child was like your very own
With different traits and varied styles
But, your direction set the tone
For their future, across the miles
Your students could not always see
The lessons you shared from the heart
Yet, as they reached their destiny
They understood you played a part.


For years, your wisdom touched your class
But, seasons change and hours fade
Your teaching days have come to pass
Though, not the difference you have made
You may be setting down your chalk
In favor of time in the sun
But, the minds you’ve helped to unlock
Shall validate the work you’ve done.

This is very beautiful, Jill. As a teacher myself and principal now, it is truly touching and inspiring to know some people think like this. Thank you.

A beautiful poem, Jill.

It caused me to reflect. There have been some wonderful teachers who played a part of my growth. I must say, there have some who simply did not try hard enough. The ones who did made up for it.
God Bless,
