    Heart of A Teacher
    by Paula J. Fox

    The child arrives like a mystery box…
    with puzzle pieces inside
    some of the pieces are broken or missing…
    and others just seem to hide

    But the HEART of a teacher can sort them out…
    and help the child to see
    the potential for greatness he has within…
    a picture of what he can be

    Her goal isn’t just to teach knowledge…
    by filling the box with more parts
    it’s putting the pieces together…
    to create a work of art.

    The process is painfully slow at times…
    some need more help than others
    each child is a work in progress…
    with assorted shapes and colors

    First she creates a classroom…
    where the child can feel safe in school
    where he never feels threatened or afraid to try…
    and kindness is always the rule

    She knows that a child can achieve
    much more when he feels secure inside
    when he’s valued and loved…and believes in himself …
    and he has a sense of pride

    She models and teaches good character…
    and respect for one another
    how to focus on strengths…not weaknesses
    and how to encourage each other

    She gives the child the freedom he needs…
    to make choices on his own
    so he learns to become more responsible…
    and is able to stand alone

    He’s taught to be strong and think for himself…
    as his soul and spirit heal
    and the puzzle that’s taking shape inside…
    has a much more positive feel

    The child discovers the joy that comes…
    from learning something new…
    and his vision grows as he begins
    to see all the things he can do

    A picture is formed as more pieces fit…
    an image of the child within
    with greater strength and confidence…
    and a belief that he can win!

    All because a hero was there…
    in the HEART of a teacher who cared
    enabling the child to become much more…
    than he ever imagined…or dared

    A teacher with a HEART for her children…
    knows what teaching is all about
    she may not have all the answers…
    but on this…she has no doubt

    When asked which subjects she loved to teach,
    she answered this way and smiled…
    “It’s not the subjects that matter…

    It’s all about teaching the CHILD.
