Poetry for Children. Thank You Teacher Poems

Thank You Teacher Poems


by Kevin William Huff

Paint their minds
and guide their thoughts
Share their achievements
and advise their faults

Inspire a Love
of knowledge and truth
As you light the path
Which leads our youth

For our future brightens
with each lesson you teach
Each smile you lengthen
Each goal you help reach

For the dawn of each poet
each philosopher and king
Begins with a Teacher
And the wisdom they bring.


by Cleo V. Swarat

I dreamed I stood in a studio
And watched two sculptors there,
The clay they used was a young child’s mind
And they fashioned it with care.

One was a teacher:
the tools she used were books and music and art;
One was a parent
With a guiding hand and gentle loving heart.

And when at last their work was done,
They were proud of what they had wrought.
For the things they had worked into the child
Could never be sold or bought!

And each agreed she would have failed
if she had worked alone.
For behind the parent stood the school,
and behind the teacher stood the home!

Why God Made Teachers

by Kevin William Huff

When God created teachers,
He gave us special friends
To help us understand His world
And truly comprehend
The beauty and the wonder
Of everything we see,
And become a better person
With each discovery.

When God created teachers,
He gave us special guides
To show us ways in which to grow
So we can all decide
How to live and how to do
What's right instead of wrong,
To lead us so that we can lead
And learn how to be strong.

Why God created teachers,
In His wisdom and His grace,
Was to help us learn to make our world
A better, wiser place.

Gratitude To Old Teachers

by Robert Bly

When we stride or stroll across the frozen lake,
We place our feet where they have never been.
We walk upon the unwalked. But we are uneasy.
Who is down there but our old teachers?
Water that once could take no human weight-
We were students then- holds up our feet,
And goes on ahead of us for a mile.
Beneath us the teachers, and around us the stillness

Stand For Teacher

by Ahmad Shawqi

Stand for the teacher and honor his rank…
...for a teacher is almost as a prophet
Do you know of someone nobler than…
...he who nurtures minds and hearts
You encompass all, the Best Teacher…
...You taught with the pen the earliest people
You brought this mind forth from darkness…
...and guided it to an enlightened, radiant path
For if the teacher is not just, then lost…
...is the spirit of justice in youth for certain
If the teacher's insight lapses for a moment…
...then those under his tutelage will lack vision
If guidance and counsel are based on whim…
...and on arrogance, then call that misguidance.

To Every Student

by Gloria Celiant

In every school, to every student
there's a special teacher.
To every teacher, to every student
there's a special bond.
To every bond to every moment
There's a special time that we'll think
back and say to ourself's «That teacher
really cared!»
If you know that teacher cares
you're life will brighten up.
Cause now you know that
if you fall, that same special teacher
Will come and help you up.

Duties Of A Teacher

by Joseph T. Renaldi

The everyday duties of a teacher
Are as difficult as they can be,
Whether in an elementary or secondary school
Or whether the teacher is a he or she.

The teacher must possess a bundle of information,
A knowledge that will constantly shine,
And in addition must maintain class discipline
To keep all the students properly in line.


Teachers are dedicated,
to our education.
This is their passion,
and our liberation.

Their sincere kindness,
warm feelings, it brings.
They guide and protect us,
under their wings.

They show us patience,
and readily spread.
Their helpful advice,
fills us like bread.

They don't just instruct,
but encourage and believe,
That there's nothing out there,
we cannot achieve.

They think about,
our future all the time.
Work tirelessly to direct us,
away from conflicts and crime.

At the end of the day,
teachers do understand.
It takes both tools and love,
For our young minds to expand.

*** *** ***

There are insurmountable number of questions
To be answered during every period of the day,
And test papers must be carefully graded when
The students leave and go merrily on their way.

The pleasures and encounters of an evening out
Are few and seldom to be socially shared,
Because the next day's lessons must have priority,
Be reviewed and lessons carefully prepared.

A dedicated teacher gets a personal satisfaction
In this cumbersome and timeless atmosphere.
The role of a teacher is vital in this complex world,
Preparing all students for a future career.

Thank You

Thank you for being,
my teacher and friend.
A really big hug,
I wish to extend.

Teaching is your talent,
you know how to explain.
You do so much,
yet don't expect fame.

Thank you for all those,
stories and tales.
Capturing my interest,
this never fails.

You provide me with info,
about science and health.
Help unlock my curiosity,
which the key to my wealth.

Thank you for being approachable,
and so easy to chat.
You deserve an award,
a bonus and pat.

My Favorite Teacher

You're my favorite teacher,
this is obvious and clear.
When I'm in your class,
I open my ear.

You encourage me,
to learn and create.
Your teaching style,
is a wonderful trait.

I'm really glad,
that we do get along.
You don't criticize me,
when I get things wrong.

You're one of those teachers,
always helpful and warm.
Inside the classroom,
you can calm any storm.

You're my favorite teacher,
this is obvious and clear.
I hope and I pray,
you'll be my teacher next year.

Thank you

Some teachers are sweet

Some teachers are a delight

Some teachers are funny

Some teachers are always right

Some teachers are cute

Some teachers are annoying

Some teachers are boring

Some teachers are irritating

But you, are hard to label

Because in every possible way

You motivate and inspire us

Day after day…

Thank you

Here's one more poem about our favorite teachers:

Wonderful Teacher

You've been a teacher,
that I truly admire.
In so many ways,
you constantly inspire.

Taught me the importance,
of a life filled with books.
And never to judge one,
by its cover or looks.

I've learned to apply,
the knowledge I read.
The lessons you taught me,
shall help me succeed.

You've always been,
thoughtful and nice.
Willing to help,
through your personal advice.

With certain questions,
you taught me to adapt and adjust.
In my abilities,
you continuously show trust.

You're a wonderful teacher,
and you really stand out.
You're my very favorite,
without any doubt.
