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.
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.
We would be happy to frame the print for you using one of our two white wooden custom-made frames. We offer Smooth Flat White or Stepped Grained White.
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!
