    A witty and warm teacher poem that celebrates the many roles a hard working teacher performs every single day!

    Our 'What is a Teacher?' A4 print makes the perfect teacher gift for the end of term. A very unique way to say thank you to a brilliant teacher.

    Comes unframed.

    The poem was written by award-winning Bespoke Verse poet Joanna Miller. She used to be an English teacher herself, so she knows what makes a good present. She also knows what hard work it is!

    As seen on TV - our poem was filmed by the BBC and used to close 'Britain's Classroom Heroes' on BBC2, October 2017.

    The font choice is: dark blue, red, purple, light blue, soft taupe.

    For an additional fee, you are welcome to add a short message (max eight words) at the bottom of the poem.

    The text reads:

    What is a Teacher?

    A walker, a talker, a corridor stalker

    A leader, director & tactful corrector

    A role-model, tutor, a whiz with computer

    A natural persuader, a daily first-aider

    A reader, a writer, reports all-nighter

    A printer, protector, a problem deflector

    A marker, a setter, a sender of letter

    A natural orator, a known confiscator

    A divider, decider, a spare pen provider

    A cutter, a sticker, a fair-minded picker

    A debater, relater & smile reinstater

    A pairer, a carer, a lesson preparer

    A defender, a lender, a broker & mender

    A creator, inventor, inspiring mentor

    A smiler, a filer, a stay back a while

    A parent reminder, lost property finder

    A keen finder-outer, & sometimes a shouter

    A describer, reviser, a trip organiser

    A thinker, a winker, a covered in inker

    An on your sider & staff-room resider

    That’s what makes a Teacher!
