My Teachers

I once had a teacher who taught me to read
and how to spell words that I someday would need.
How could she have known where that someday would lead
when she shared her gift with me?

I once had a teacher who taught me to sing.
A song in your heart is a wonderful thing.
I wonder if she knew how much joy that would bring
when she shared her gift with me?

I once had a teacher who taught me to draw
She opened my eyes to the beauty I saw.
She taught me to see there is beauty in us all
when she shared her gift with me.

I once had a teacher who taught me to play
as part of a team – not always my way.
He taught me a lesson on sharing that day
when he shared his gift with me.

I once had a professor who taught me to engineer.
A light in my brain that lasts for the rest of my life.
He taught me what I am supposed to do for living
when he shared his gift with me.

All of these teachers shared gifts that were free.
What I do with these lessons is all up to me.
If I share them with others how thankful they will be
that they shared their gifts with me.

I sincerely thank with due respect all of my teachers, lecturers, professors and whatever other ways we called them and without what you have given me I wouldn’t be where I am today.

Dear Sri Venkateswara Balakuteer Faculty,
If I could give grades to you, I would give you an A+ for being the most wonderful teachers in the world!
