New, original teacher poems recently posted at poemsource.com include elementary school, high school and college teacher poems. These "Thank You Teacher" poems are designed for National Teacher Appreciation Week, and they are also appropriate for end-of-the-school-year "Goodbye Teacher" messages.
"Kids want to express their affection and appreciation for their favorite teachers at the end of the year," says poemsource.com greeting card poet Joanna Fuchs, "and these poems are written with that need in mind."
"People are looking for traditional rhyming poems, which are hard to find anymore," says Fuchs, "but they still want poems in that classic form, and they search for them. The rhythm and rhyme give people a unique, natural pleasure," she says, "and they are easy to memorize. You can probably still remember, word for word, some of the rhyming poems you read as a child."
Fuchs says she’s been writing greeting card poems since she was a little kid. "When I was about eight years old, I made greeting cards for my family and wrote my own rhymes for them," she says, and I'm still doing it. The site is about 18 months old, and I just keep writing more and more poems for it."
The following free teacher poem from poemsource.com was written with high school and college level teachers in mind:
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;
In many ways that you will never know.
I will remember you my whole life through;
I wish that all my teachers were like you.
This next poem was written for younger students to give to their teachers:
The Teacher Gets A+
I look forward to your class
When I come to school.
You're an awesome teacher;
I think you're very cool.
You're smart and fair and friendly;
You're helping all of us.
And if I got to grade you,
From me you'd get A+!
In addition to teacher poems, the site includes anniversary, birthday, baby, friendship, graduation, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, get well, Christmas, New Year, Valentine and wedding poems.
