A Teacher's Prayer

I saw this on one of my favorite blogs  Teaching with TLC today and I just had to share it.


Teacher’s Prayer

I want to teach my children how
To live this life on earth,
To face its struggles and its strife
And to improve their worth.
Not just the lesson in a book
Or how the rivers flow,
But how to choose the proper path
Wherever they may go.
To understand eternal truth
And know right from wrong,
And gather all the beauty of
A flower and a song.
For if I help the world to grow
In wisdom and in grace,
Then I shall feel that I have won
And I have filled my place.
And so I ask Your guidance, God,
That I may do my part,
For character and confidence
And happiness of heart.
 ~James J. Metcalf


That pretty much sums up my feelings.  Have a great day!

  2. I have been browsing online greater than three hours today, but I never found any
    attention-grabbing article like yours. It is pretty value sufficient for
    me. In my opinion, if all web owners and bloggers made excellent content
    material as you probably did, the net might be a lot more helpful than ever before.

  3. We are starting a preschool at Calvary Baptist Church in Alexandria, LA. Do you have any curriculum suggestions for 2's, 3's, and Pre-K?
