A teacher poem celebrating all the different talents and roles a teacher has.
Our witty and warm 'What is a Teacher?' poem makes the perfect teacher gift for christmas or the end of term. A very unique way to say thank you to a brilliant teacher.
The poem was written by Bespoke Verse poet Joanna Miller. She used to be a teacher herself, so she knows exactly what makes a good present!
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?'
You can chose from the background colours: green, grey, taupe.
The print is supplied unframed.
You can choose to add a complimentary personalised 2 line message at the bottom (BENEATH the last line of the poem - as in the images). To do this we remove the last two rhyming lines (25 & 26) and rearrange the last 4 lines to the best effect. We recommend no more than 8 words per line.
What is a Teacher?
A wiper, a blower, an everything knower
A listening ear, a calm refereer
A reader, a writer, reports all-nighter
A printer, protector, a problem deflector.
A marker, a setter, a sender of letter
An assessor, a planner, a maker of banner
A natural orator, a known confiscator
A divider, decider, a spare clothes provider.
An artist, a potter, a lace unknotter
A sticker, a tricker & fair-minded picker
A debater, relater & smile reinstater
A pairer, a carer, a costume preparer.
A defender, a lender, a broker & mender
A creator, inventor, inspiring mentor
A smiler, a filer, a stay back a whiler
A parent reminder, lost property finder.
A keen finder-outer, & sometimes a shouter
A walker, a talker, a corridor stalker
A play director, a tactful corrector
A designer & baker, a help with mistaker.
A role-model, tutor, a whiz with computer
A natural persuader, a daily first-aider
A describer, reviser, a trip organiser
A weigher, displayer, a patient game player
A thinker, a winker, a covered in inker (removed if a message is added)
An on your sider & staff-room resider (removed if a message is added)
Thats what makes a Teacher!
