Why I Teach

I will never claim,
I teach for the glory or fame.
The paychecks are small,
but, I don’t teach for that at all.

Some nights I can’t sleep,
I try my hardest to count sheep.
But I’m lost in thought,
Have I helped each student or not?

Most students pass,
And just move on from my class.
They were taught what they need,
But, did I really feed?

In over 4 years,
I have only twice been brought to tears.
Only twice….
I have known, I made a difference.

In most professions things are tough.
Knowing you succeed twice is not enough.
But, twice is all I need,
To know that I did succeed.
