If I Could…
I would teach each child to be positive,
to smile, to love and be loved.
I would teach each child to take time to
observe some miracle of nature – the song
of a bird, the beauty of a snowflake,
the orange glow of a winter sunset.
I would teach each child to feel warmly about
the peers for whom the task of learning
does not come easily.
I would teach each child that it is OK to show
their feelings by laughing, crying, or
talking with someone they care about.
Every day I would have each child feel special,
and through my actions, each one would
know how much I really care.
