Eyes that see into the window of the soul;
Ears that hear desires and dreams hidden in goals;
Hands that mold vessels created to give glory;
Hearts that impart life - yet only the beginning of the story..

A teacher's influence is the key that can unlock the door of aspiration, creativity, and enthusiasm in a student. The image reflected in the eyes of a teacher, can be a students inspiring vision along the journey of success.
More is imparted through a teacher's heart than is ever taught by the selected texts. For a good teacher knows that knowledge is simply the accumulation of facts, but imparting a passion for life-long learning, and the desire to utilize what is learned for empowerment is invaluable.

Good teachers invest a part of themselves in every student they teach and the return of that investment - compounded by the interest generated in their students to likewise share what they know - is immeasurable!

Very neat. A teacher's eyes see into the window of the soul. Very short and to the point.

what an encouraging word for teachers.

yes teachers are indeed one of the wisest investment around.

A true teacher imparts the values you have described as a wise investment in their students. Very well written

Reminds me of the old proverb to teach someone to fish is a greater investment than to give one a fish.

Thanks for the insights.

Good insight. Thank you for sharing this.

I thoroughly enjoyed this. I liked the way you tied the main part of your article to the poem. Very nicely done. Where did the poem come from, by-the-way? It looks as if there's more to it, and I would like to read it all if you know where I could find it. And, just out of curiosity, are you in the banking field? Your "wise investment" and "compounded by the interest" phrases made me ask. Well-written and easy to read. Short and to the point.
