I was surfing the web. I heard a new (to me) poem today and, looking for it online, I found this.

I am sure it could have been written by any number of teachers anywhere. The names, the stories would be different. The message is the same. I have had teachers like this. This is the teacher I want to be. For all good teachers everywhere who want to "make a difference": http://www.conval.org/as_i_leave.htm

Thanks for the link. It brought tears to my eyes and I forwarded it to my staff at school. Loved the chewed on pencil metaphor.
