I AM A TEACHER

I’m a teacher…………..
Behind that doctor,
Is me, a teacher………..

Behind that economist ,
Is me, a teacher……….

Above those astronomers ,

Is me, a teacher…………..

I carry the light even though they mostly make jokes of me………..

But I am a teacher……..

I don’t qualify for a RDP house……

nor earn enough to buy an expensive one………….

But yes, I am a teacher………..

Some think or even say that I have too many holidays ,

never knowing that I spend those holidays either correcting papers

or planning what and how I’m going to teach when I go back to school……..
Because I am a teacher…..

 Sometimes I get confused and even get stressed

by the ever changing policies by the politicians who have political powers

over what and how I have to teach…….

Despite all that I am a teacher and I have to teach and I am teaching…….

The main source of my satisfaction is when I see them growing, succeeding, having all those assets ,

 bravely facing the world and its challenges…….


and I say,  Yes ! I’ve taught in spite of living in a world opened by Google…….

Because I am a teacher…………
Yes , I am a teacher……..
It doesn’t matter how they look at me,

 It doesn’t matter how much more they earn than me,

 It doesn’t matter that they drive while I walk ,
because all what they have is through me , a teacher……

Whether they acknowledge me or not……

I am a teacher…….
