I wrote this in appreciation of all the people that dedicate their time to teaching the next generation.

Oh, where would we be?

Teachers help you see

If there were no teacher,

We would be what stupid creatures

Teachers prepare us for the future,

By teaching us about the past

They help us indirectly make the righteous choice

From being polite, to raise our hand and how to speak up, make others hear our voice

Teachers may seem unimportant to teens,

So may English to medieval times to means,

Teachers influence us, even if it doesn’t seem so,

From how the earth works, how we live, to the cause of snow

They help us learn,

Though we may not yearn,

How to support ourselves; get a good job we earn

We wouldn’t know half the things today

If teachers weren’t at school almost everyday

Teachers rarely get the thanks they deserve

From a veterinarian to a Marine in the reserve

Without teachers, our lives wouldn’t be the same

From electricity, to predicting when it rains

So from not going to school we should refrain

Teachers put up with so much, yet they’re still sane

So next time you see a teacher, take just a minute to say

Thanks for their service, and they will appreciate your gratitude and remember you

As the student that meant something to them

For without teachers,

we would be what pitiful creatures
