[teacherartexchange] OT: My Wish for You Today - Make One Child Smile
Dear Art Educators,
Anna posted a similar version of this to Art 4 Peace list.
I had to edit here. I do not know the original author.
My wish for you for today
I wish for you to be grateful
For the students who like to learn,
And feel challenged by those who don't.
I wish for you to be thankful
For the students you love
And understand those you are learning to love.
I wish for you to be motivated
By the students who learn to think
And be committed by those afraid to try.
I wish for you to be inspired
By the students who choose right over wrong
And be patient with those who lack the courage.
I wish for you to be gentle
With the students who make mistakes
And learn to forgive a difficult child.
I wish for you to be wise
With the students building character
And be unwavering with those with little conscience.
I wish for you to be committed
To the students who are responsible
And be persistent with those who value little.
I wish for you to be calm
In the midst of violence
And model self-control in the midst of anger.
I wish for you to be faithful
In the days of discouragement
And be dedicated to make one child smile.
Thanks Anna for sharing this with us on Art for Peace:
And thanks to the original author for understanding my need to change it here.
