A Teacher's Final Lesson

Poetry By: behindthesmile86

As the school year comes to an end, a teacher says goodbye to her second grade students through a poem. She hopes to teach one final lesson to her students before they leave her classroom and continue their journey through life.

You are very special (Student's Name), and I want you to know,
I loved being your teacher; and it's hard to see you go.

Though our time together this year, has come quickly to an end,
I will remember you forever, my dear second grade friend.

As you continue your journey, you will learn and grow,
Please carry these words I give to you, wherever you may go:

Always do your best, no matter how hard it seems.
And if you do, I promise, you will reach your dreams.

Remember to tell yourself, "I CAN do it", because I know you can;
Think of all you've learned since school first began.

Reading, Writing and Math; I know weren't always fun,
But I am so proud of you for all that you have done.

You will continue learning as you move from grade to grade,
Keep in mind and think about the progress you have made.

If you feel like giving up - - keep trying, you'll make it through.
I know this, for not too long ago, I was a student just like you.

I had special teacher who taught me something, too;

And throughout this year I've tried to teach it to you:

Always believe in yourself and know that it is true;

You will see, you can do anything you set your mind to.

So, as time goes by, you may forget certain things about the second grade

Like the stories we read and the games that we played

But there's one thing I hope you remember your whole life through,
It's to know that you CAN do it, (Student's Name), and Ms. Mullen believes in you.
