    We have many brothers and sisters all across the global
    We need to be able to speak to them.
    So more then one language should be known
    We can unite as one

    I had a very wise teacher who travel to many lands
    Those she was a history teacher she was a philosopher as well
    She spoke to us in Spanish and French during our history lesson
    She may the chore of learning become a joy and a welcome event

    As we learned about our cultural though more then one language
    Everyone in her class always got a (A) and 100 percent attendance
    And we were all so surprise when they said she could no longer stay
    The CEO of the Broad of Education. Personally threw a pink slip her way.

    A large percentage of our teacher was laid off from our school
    So sad to see the ones who left. Were the ones who students they taught excel

    Before she left the classroom. She gave each one of us a hug.
    That was before it was made against the rules to touch students.
    She said to continue to grow and excel in our lesson.
    She smiles as she said with pride that she sees the leaders in us.

    She said that it is very important to grasp and find out who you are
    That is why she because a teacher of history as she was still searching near and far.
    And to learn to speak in many languages so we won’t seem a stranger
    To our African brothers and sister who live in other countries

    I was so lucky to have this teacher so wise and kind in my life
    And we all learned and continue to excel. We wanted her to be proud of us.
    So yes learned to speak in more then one tongue
    It is so strange now, because they are now teaching Ebonics.

    I look and wonder why. The directors of our education
    Choice to teach us something other then plain English
    I guess the way to stop communication is though the public school system
    So make it an unwritten rule teach yourself if you must

    A lesson I learned from a very wise teacher.

    True indeed...the knowledge in which one seeks
    is usually found in the zeal of what they sought on their own
    the teachers of old are no longer
    even if they have the heart
    there controlled by learning outcomes,
    constant assessment and the law...

    when will administration "learn"...
    and allow true teachers to emerge


    as always Blue...the waters flow deep!
