*Mirror, hang on the wall*

*never miss his reflection *

*as he pass the corridors gleeful*

*boisterous and wicked on brats, us*

*his students, knocking off whatever*

*skirmish we had, taming us like *

*lambs into wilderness of his wit*

*making our childhood so much memorable.*

Post for dVerse written in memory of our late science grade school teacher, Sir Abella. He never missed to allure us even on difficult situations thru his wits and vivacious approach on teaching us. Surely, we will not forget what fun you had shared with us Sir. Rest in peace.

Teachers can make or break a child. It sounds like this one was a gem.

It’s a good teacher that manages to dazzle the students. Well penned.

we look up at them when we are still so small

Yes indeed. His life definitely dazzled the lives of his students.

thanks

Great teachers light up the lives of their students and bring out the sparkle in them.

very true

Some teachers just bring the razzle-dazzle, don’t they? So thankful for those who bring that little “extra” to the table with my own kids, now. I am so sorry for your loss.

yes some really do

I do remember some teachers the same way… great tribute…

thanks

The wise teacher creates a space into which the student can grow. I am sure he would have loved this verse.

i hope he can read this

Wonderful tribute to an admired teacher

thank you

A beautiful way to use the prompt. Teachers can be the spark that ignites a child’s curiousity, confidence and ultimately their pathways of life. Sorry for your loss.

Teachers have such an impact on us. I remember my favourite one – she taught English Literature. She’s why I write now!
