Teacher Poem Print

A witty and warm teacher poem that celebrates the many roles a hard working teacher performs every single day!

Our 'What is a Teacher?' A4 print makes the perfect teacher gift for Christmas or the end of term. A very unique way to say thank you to a brilliant teacher.

The poem was written by award-winning Bespoke Verse poet Joanna Miller. She used to be an English teacher herself, so she knows what makes a good present.

As seen on TV - our poem was filmed by the BBC and used to close 'Britain's Classroom Heroes' on BBC2, October 2017.

The poem background colour is taupe but it is also available in grey.

The poem is printed on the highest quality card which measures H30 x W21cm (A4). It is unframed and presented smartly in cellophane with backing board behind. The text/font colour is white. Please see the other colours available.

The poem reads:


What is a Teacher?

A wiper, a blower, an everything knower

A listening ear, a calm refereer

A reader, a writer, reports all-nighter

A printer, protector, a problem deflector.

A marker, a setter, a sender of letter

An assessor, a planner, a maker of banner

A natural orator, a known confiscator

A divider, decider, a spare clothes provider.

An artist, a potter, a lace unknotter

A sticker, a tricker & fair-minded picker

A debater, relater & smile reinstater

A pairer, a carer, a costume preparer.

A defender, a lender, a broker & mender

A creator, inventor, inspiring mentor

A smiler, a filer, a stay back a whiler

A parent reminder, lost property finder.

A keen finder-outer, & sometimes a shouter

A walker, a talker, a corridor stalker

A play director, a tactful corrector

A designer & baker, a help with mistaker.

A role-model, tutor, a whiz with computer

A natural persuader, a daily first-aider

A describer, reviser, a trip organiser

A weigher, displayer, a patient game player

A thinker, a winker, a covered in inker (removed if a message is added)

An on your sider & staff-room resider (removed if a message is added)

That’s what makes a Teacher!
