Growing up, we were asked to choose
Doctor, Lawyer, and Princess too.
There was only one job that I
Ever thought could change my life
And still be enough.
Reading, writing, critical thinking.
Of being an English teacher is what I'm thinking.
To help kids learn, while still learning myself,
Teachers are oft the most important thing
In the world.
While we underestimate
Just what a teachers job is to do,
My one goal in life
Is to be an English teacher too.
As a child, I watched my mother teach,
While reading to her students
It somehow felt complete.
To help students learn how to write
And to speak in a way that is right
To teach them how to fly
In a world they created on their own.
For me, there's no question why
Since the answer is plain to see
What I wish to be
Is an English teacher, toot sweet.
