There can be no profession
with more honour on its breast,
Than that which touches children
and trains them to do their best.
To plant the seeds of greatness
in those fertile little ones,
Paving the ever-upward path
with knowledge and with fun.
Those who teach our children
to learn and try and grow,
Launch a future that is brighter
than our fondest dreams may know.
In a country famed for freedom
and a world so full of need,
There are no jewels more precious
than the teacher with this seed.
-Mark B. Johnson, Sr.
