Short Poems For Teachers

Just like how lighthouses help in guiding ships through the darkness, a good teacher always directs his students in the right path. The motivation provided by a teacher many times also leads to positive changes in the lives of the students. Many of the eminent teachers in history were individuals who thrived to build a better society and worked at the grass root level to achieve that. They believed that nurturing great values in human beings at a very young age is very important for the society to become progressive. Many renowned political leaders, artists, businessmen and defense personnel of today owe their success to the teachers, who taught them to dream big and pursue their interests. These individuals, who are role models to many across the world, have even mentioned the role of their teachers in their success and paid tribute to their guides through the pages of their autobiographies. Students across the world express their gratitude towards their teachers on a particular day of the year, popularly known as ‘Teacher's Day'. One of the most common ways of expressing your love and gratitude towards your teachers is through poems, which will bring a wide smile on the faces of the individuals who mold their students into precious gems.

Teacher's Day Short Poetry

Teachers

When we stride or stroll across the frozen lake,
We place our feet where they have never been.
We walk upon the unwalked. But we are uneasy.
Who is down there but our old teachers?
Water that once could take no human weight-
We were students then- holds up our feet,
And goes on ahead of us for a mile.
Beneath us the teachers, and around us the stillness

God Made Teachers

God understood our thirst for
Knowledge, And Our Need To Be Led
By someone wiser;
He needed a heart of compassion,
Of encouragement, and patience;
Someone who would accept
The Challenge Regardless Of The
Opposition;
Someone who could see potential
And believe in the best in others . . .
So he made teachers

Two More Days Till School

I'm finally going to school this year,
and now the big day's almost here.
I'll learn to write and count and read--
Only two more days till school.

I got new pants and shirts and socks,
a brand-new red and blue lunch box;
I'll paint and sing and dance and play--
Only one more day fill school.

My hair is washed, my sneakers squeak,
I'm so excited, I can hardly speak!
New things to do, new friends to meet--
Hooray! It's the first day of school!
- Leslie Kimmelman

To A Special Teacher

When I started in School,
This day seemed so far away.
Now it's here and I can't believe
That time has passed so quickly
But through your encouragement and guidance
I feel I'm ready for tomorrow's challenges.
Teachers play such an important part
In shaping and guiding...
Especially teachers like you,
Thank you for caring so much.

To Number One Teacher

I'm happy that you're my teacher;
I enjoy each lesson you teach.
As my role model you inspire me
To dream and to work and to reach.
With your kindness you get my attention;
Every day you are planting a seed
Of curiosity and motivation
To know and to grow and succeed.
You help me fulfill my potential;
I'm thankful for all that you've done.
I admire you each day, and I just want to say,
As a teacher, you're number one!
- Joanna Fuchs

Teachers

Teachers are dedicated,
to our education.
This is their passion,
and our liberation.

Their sincere kindness,
warm feelings, it brings.
They guide and protect us,
under their wings.

They show us patience,
and readily spread.
Their helpful advice,
fills us like bread.

They don't just instruct,
but encourage and believe,
That there's nothing out there,
we cannot achieve.

They think about,
our future all the time.
Work tirelessly to direct us,
away from conflicts and crime.

At the end of the day,
teachers do understand.
It takes both tools and love,
For our young minds to expand.

Oh teacher, Oh teacher!
My test isn't signed
Because somehow
My parents went blind Now,
don't say it's my fault,

They left their hands in the bank vault.
Oh teacher, Oh teacher
Do you know why
I was born without wings
And so cannot fly
Thus I am late
Didn't have breakfast,
So if you don't mind,
Pass me a plate.
Oh teacher, Oh teacher!
I've failed again Please don't scold me,
Now you'll see why,
I was thinking about
Having an eagle's brain.
- Sharmila Saheed

The Best Teachers

Teachers open up young minds,
showing them the wonders of the intellect
and the miracle
of being able to think for themselves.
A teacher exercises
the mental muscles of students,
stretching and strengthening,
so they can make challenging decisions,
find their way in the world,
and become independent.
The best teachers care enough
To gently push and prod students
to do their best
and fulfill their potential.
You are one of those.
Thank you.

Gratitude To Old Teachers

When we stride or stroll across the frozen lake,
We place our feet where they have never been.
We walk upon the unwalked. But we are uneasy.
Who is down there but our old teachers?
Water that once could take no human weight-
We were students then- holds up our feet,
And goes on ahead of us for a mile.
Beneath us the teachers, and around us the stillness
-By Robert Bly

I'll Remember You Always

Rarely does someone
get to influence a person's life
in a positive way
for a lifetime,
as a teacher can,
fostering optimism and confidence,
providing knowledge that leads to success,
and being a good role model,
as you have,
and you are,
and you will...
forever.
I'll remember you always.
Thank you.

A Teacher for All Seasons

A teacher is like Spring,
Who nurtures new green sprouts,
Encourages and leads them,
Whenever they have doubts.

A teacher is like Summer,
Whose sunny temperament
Makes studying a pleasure,
Preventing discontent.

A teacher is like Fall,
With methods crisp and clear,
Lessons of bright colors
And a happy atmosphere.

A teacher is like Winter,
While it's snowing hard outside,
Keeping students comfortable,
As a warm and helpful guide.

Teacher, you do all these things,
With a pleasant attitude;
You're a teacher for all seasons,
And you have my gratitude!
- By Joanna Fuchs

My Teacher

Thank you, my teacher, for being there
At times when skies were gray
Thank you, my teacher, for lending an ear
When I had things to say
You showered love on me lavishly
When no one seemed to care
You brought me joys untold
To fill my heart with moments of gold
I would have felt isolated and lonely
If you had not been there
I lack the words to let you know
How much you mean to me,
But I will profusely thank God for you
Until the Eternity.
- Maryam Mashhadi

The Sonnet For An Unforgettable Teacher

When I began your class I think I knew
The kind of challenges you'd make me face.
You gave me motivation to pursue
The best, and to reject the commonplace.
Your thinking really opened up my mind.
With wisdom, style and grace, you made me see,
That what I'd choose to seek, I'd surely find;
You shook me out of my complacency.
I thank you now for everything you've done;
What you have taught me I will not outgrow.
Your kind attention touched my mind and heart;
In many ways that you will never know.
I will remember you my whole life through;
I wish that all my teachers were like you.
