Teacher

A teacher exists for and because of the learner
Who draws out the excellence in the teacher,
With trust, curiosity, hope, courage and urge to grow..
Teaching learning is thus a cycle
Of giving and taking to give back again
And so the spiral continues
Endlessly to eternity..

A teacher exists as a container of knowledge
And wisdom handed down generations,
Refining and indigenizing to continue
The cycle of teaching and learning-
Of giving and taking to give back again
And so the spiral continues
Endlessly to eternity..

Hierarchy and power imbalance in teaching & learning
Are thus mediated and synthesized to form a
Bond of transformative experiences, of nurturing
The cycle of teaching and learning-
Of giving and taking to give back again
And so the spiral continues
Endlessly to eternity..
