Sonnet for An Unforgettable Teacher

When I began your class I think I knew
The kind of challenges you’d make me face.
You gave me motivation to pursue
The best, and to reject the commonplace.
Your thinking really opened up my mind.
With wisdom, style and grace, you made me see,
That what I’d choose to seek, I’d surely find;
You shook me out of my complacency.
I thank you now for everything you’ve done;
What you have taught me I will not outgrow.
Your kind attention touched my mind and heart;

We’ll Remember You, A special Teacherteacher-appreciation-cc10-222x300-3410173

Thank you for helping us
To learn what we need to know
We’ll all remember you
No matter where we go.
Thank you, teacher, for being
So nice and kind and good;
We like you so much, teacher,
We’d stay here if we could!

The End of Our Sweet Memories

Six years of primary school is almost at its end
Now what awaits us are new teachers, new friends
Don’t hold back the tears, feel free to cry
It is after all, our final goodbye

Bittersweet memories all started here
Of happiness, sadness, anger and fear
It’s time to move on as the future comes near
It’s time to end our sixth year

Notes that were passed amongst each other
Homework and tests that were always a bother
Friends that would always stick together
All started here in one way or another

The stepping stones, the last few years were
To the life we’re about to face
So I thank everyone who has helped me here
And giving me dreams to chase

A huge thank you to all my friends
For being there for me
I hope this is not when our friendship ends
It’s just not meant to be

My teachers, thank you so much
For never giving up on me
I know I’m not that good and such
But at least I’m trying to be

Six years have passed by so fast
Never thought this day would come near
Alas, let’s just celebrate our last
The end of our primary school years

Poem from Teacher’s heart

By the end of the school year,  for a teacher, it is a time of mixed feelings, happy for students have achieved educational goals, while sad of realizing his students would have an ending of school life there because of graduation or moving to another city. 

Besides to receive teacher appreciation gifts from students, teachers also want to giveback by writing a poem to congratulate every student and wish they have bright future.


Bless this little heart, this white soul that has won the kiss of heaven for our earth.
He loves the light of the sun, he loves the sight of his mother’s face.
He has not learned to despise the dust, and to hanker after gold.
Clasp him to your heart and bless him.
He has come into this land of an hundred cross-roads.
I know not how he chose you from the crowd, came to your door, and grasped your hand to ask his way.
He will follow you, laughing and talking, and not a doubt in his heart.
Keep his trust, lead him straight and bless him.
Lay your hand on his head, and pray that though the waves underneath grow threatening, yet the breath from above may come and fill his sails and waft him to the haven of peace.
Forget him not in your hurry, let him come to your heart and bless him.

This Hand I Hold

This hand I hold I touch it now
For all eternity,
And the knowledge that I share
I give from me to you.

In hope that all you do and say
Reflects the lessons learned,
And all the awards that you receive
Are ones that you have earned.

I am your present teacher
And your true friend,
But when the year is over
My thoughts of you won’t end.

For in my dearest memory
Forever you will be,
And when you go I hope that you
Will take a part of me.

This hand I hold I touch it now
For all eternity,
And the knowledge that I share
I give from me to you.

Every individual has experienced of ending his school year or will have that moment to come in lifetime. It is such a great time to celebrate and share with mentors, peers and family to look back with gratitude  and look forward with expectation.
