Thank you, teacher,
for being my life’s role model.
When I consider all you've taught me
and reflect on the kind of person you are,

I want to be like you—
smart, interesting and engaging,
positive, confident, yet unpretentious.

I want to be like you—
well-informed and easy to understand,
thinking with your heart as well as your head,
gently nudging us to do our best,
with sensitivity and insight.

I want to be like you—
giving your time, energy and talent
to ensure the brightest possible future
for each of us.
Thank you, teacher

For giving me a goal to shoot for:
I want to be like you!
