Blessed are the teachers who set a good example before their students in all things:
for this is what Jesus asks of us all.
Blessed are the teachers who strive to update their knowledge and skills:
for their students will also learn the value of seeking truth.
Blessed are the teachers who share with their students their life-wisdom:
for the young are our future.
Blessed are the teachers who strive to include and welcome all students and parents:
for Jesus calls us to look out for each other.
Blessed are the teachers who make provision for differences in individuals:
for their students will learn compassion and consideration for others.
Blessed are the teachers who model peaceful and just ways of relating:
for they shall influence their students to do likewise.
Blessed are the teachers who construct learning tasks that are interesting and relevant:
for they understand what true learning is.
Blessed are the teachers who negotiate good relationships in class:
for they are leading their students how to live in community and as a Family of God.
Blessed are you, all teachers and students, when others devalue what you strive to do,
for you seek not only knowledge, but the wisdom to know what to do with it. Your reward will be great, because you are creating a better world where justice, peace and harmony will prevail. Rejoice and be glad, for God is on your side!
Thank you dear teachers (including Matt's previous teachers!) God bless you all abundantly.
