    Description:
       I'm a teacher at a technical college, and we are currently between semesters, so I penned this one today.

    To undertake so great a task
    to mold a mind or remove a mask
    that hides the face of disbelief
    and covers up self doubting grief.
    To bring to life some mode of thought
    where once before was but naught.
    To shed some light on things unknown
    or plant a seed where none has grown.
    All these things are done with love
    and seem to be the duties of...
    A Teacher

    To instill knowledge where none was before
    to clear out barriers and closing doors.
    Giving understanding to those in need
    a special call it is to heed.
    To give so freely of oneself
    and help dust cobwebs from the shelf
    of a mind so eager to learn new things
    to give hearts hope; imaginations wings.
    All this is done to satisfy
    the what, where, how and why.

    To motivate and give new skills
    to an opened mind that yearns for thrills.
    Though some may sit and blankly stare
    it doesn't take away the care
    that is given to those who ask so oft
    to have thoughts lifted to an airy loft.
    Always done without push or shove
    these are daily duties of...
    A Teacher

      Fuzzy Wuzzy was a bear
    Fuzzy Wuzzy didn't care
    Fuzzy Wuzzy wasn't fuzzy
    was he?
    Don't know why this popped into my head, but there it is.
    Oh the poem wasn't too bad either
