I’m a teacher…………..
Behind that doctor,
Is me, a teacher………..

Behind that economist,
Is me, a teacher……….

Above those astronomers,                                                                                                                           Is me, a teacher…………..

I carry the light even though they mostly make jokes of me………..

But I am a teacher……..

I don’t qualify for a RDP house nor earn enough to buy an expensive one………….

But yes, I am a teacher………..

Some think or even say that I have too many holidays, never knowing that I spend those holidays either correcting papers or planning what and how I’m going to teach when i go back to school……..
Because I am a teacher..,

Sometimes I get confused and even get stressed by the ever changing policies by the politicians who have political powers over what and how I have to teach…….

Despite all that I am a teacher and I have to teach and i’m teaching………….

On pay days I don’t laugh as others do, but by the next day I have to come with a smile to those that I teach……….. Because I’m a teacher………

The main source of my satisfaction is when I see them growing, succeeding, having all those assets, bravely facing the world and its challenges,
and i say yes I’ve taught in spite of living in a world opened by Google..

Because I am a teacher…………
Yes I am a teacher……..
It doesn’t matter how they look at me,

it doesn’t matter how much more they earn than me,

it doesn’t matter that they drive while I walk
because all what they have is through me, a teacher.. Whether they acknowledge me or not……

I am a teacher………..

Teachers …… always be proud
…… Proud to be a teacher 😊 

 

Ek weet nie wie dit geskryf het nie, maar dis so waar…I am a teacher…en ja, ek het imaginary friends by die skool…ek noem hulle…”klas”
