Teacher! Teacher! – Author Laura Marie Clark


Teacher! Teacher!

Tiny hands reach up

In the hopes of a high-five

From this mysterious teacher

Born in a country

Far away,

Only seen in movies

And on maps of the world


Teacher! Teacher!

Excited students

Gather around to question

This stranger on who they are, where

They came from, and if

They’ve got

A boyfriend or girlfriend –

They always ask that one!


Teacher! Teacher!

Eager faces stare

As Teacher enters the room.

School is strict, with silent lessons,

But this one will be

Great fun! With

Funny games to drill home

The language that the students know


Teacher! Teacher!

Your confidence shines

Through you into your lessons now:

Able to act on any need,

To turn the boring

Into play.

When subjects entertain,

The students ace your class!


Teacher! Teacher!

Will you stay with us?

These lively, energetic

Lessons have become our favourites!

Now Teacher, you are


By every class you teach –

So maybe you deserve a break!
