Each day we do so many things, So many books to read. Sure is nice my teacher knows Exactly what we need. That backpack on my back today Carries back and forth my stuff. If you want to know what I learned, Listening to me will be enough. My teacher wants to plant a seed, Get my “love of learning” to sprout. - Donna Whyte
