    A PRAYER FOR SPECIAL EDUCATION TEACHERS


    1971
    Thank you Lord, for special teachers,
    Who teach the special child;
    The child whose learning problems
    Are anything but mild.
    Thank you, for giving this teachers
    The concern for each little one;
    The dedication to keep on trying,
    When hope seems almost gone.
    Thank you for her patience,
    Which is needed very much;
    Although they seem so innocent,
    They are a trying bunch.
    With out this special teacher,
    Their future would be quite dark,
    But because of her special efforts,
    They can have a start.
    It takes special qualities
    To teach these little ones.
    It takes concern and dedication
    And patience all around.
    I'm sure that most important;
    It takes a lot of love;
    This is why, I know you have
    A special place for them above.

    Amen sister! My baby sister was a special education student. Very trying person she can be. I wondered how they managed her, she was very bonded to me. She would leave class and search for me all through out her day, once left the elementary school and went on her way, found me at the juniour high, peeking through the door windows. Finally found me she did to tell me of her horrors. They had no idea where she was, or of how she went. I took her back home half a day spent, calming her of the trials that had come her way. She is 40 now, but when i am gone, she still finds a way. Write on....

    Thank you clementine. I assume you are a special education teacher. Right?

    The true philosopher and the true poet are one, and a beauty, which is truth, and a truth, which is beauty, is the aim of both.
