“The teacher who is indeed wise does not bid you to enter the house of his wisdom but rather leads you to the threshold of your mind.”

Khalil Gibran

Our minds are like an artists’ canvas,

Masters of knowledge and insight filter our worlds,

Splashing bright colors of vibrancy to rest within,

Teachers that push us to succeed and have goals,

Their paintbrush dipped into colors of encouragement,

Igniting us into flames of pursuit to alter our lives,

A part of our very destiny is weaved into their beings,

A variety of teachers instill great lessons for us to learn,

Changing our paths to grant us the most peace,

Eternally bound to us too  change us forever.

“A teacher affects eternity; he can never tell where his influence stops.”

Henry Adams
