Thank You Poems to Teachers.

I am not a poet.

I am also not a thief and will therefore not copy and reprint other people's work without permission.

However, I will point you toward what I consider to be quality sites with original content.

They are: 

  1. Free rhyming poetry for teachers and others.
  2. Searchable database of original teacher poems from the Poetry of International Poets.
  3. A poetry forum. If you ask nicely, maybe a poet will write something for you.
  4. A collection of original poetry, updated often. Search by poem or poet.

Remember to give credit where credit is due! If you find more sources for thank you poems to teachers, let me know.

The teacher who walks in the shadow of the temple, among his followers, gives not of his wisdom but rather of his faith and his lovingness. If he is indeed wise he does not bid you enter the house of his wisdom, but rather leads you to the threshold of your own mind.”
Kahlil Gibran, The Prophet

“True teachers are those who use themselves as bridges over which they invite their students to cross; then, having facilitated their crossing, joyfully collapse, encouraging them to create their own.”
Nikos Kazantzakis
