I’m a teacher…………..

*I’m a teacher…………..*

Behind that doctor,
It’s me, a teacher………..

Behind that economist,
It’s me, a teacher……….

Above those astronomers,
It’s 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 bungalow or a villa nor earn enough to buy an expensive house or a car………….like corrupt officers and corrupt politicians.

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/college/Institution……..

Because i am a teacher..,

Sometimes i get confused and even get stressed by the ever-changing policies over what and how I have to teach…….

Despite all that, I am a teacher and I love to teach and I’m teaching………….

On pay-days I don’t laugh as corrupt officers and others do, but by the next day I love to come with a smile to those that I teach………..
Because I m a teacher….

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 I DO.

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 I AM A TEACHER*…………….

Dedicated to all the amazing teachers 👏🙏🏻👍👍
