MS. HATTIE: THE SOUL TOUCHER Her kindness kindled the soul, Her sense of dignity and brilliance Permeated the classroom Inciting logic and wit That only a “thinker” could endure She plunged forth in strident awe as though Learning about God were all there was to life. Her smile engulfed the hearts of her students And evoked an intrigue for enlightenment. O, the mystery of the Soul Toucher, How well she proselytized us into believing that all things were possible to the “thinker” and the “doer” She taught with providence as she subtly glided about our gray matter, uniting the hemispheres so as to unite hearts daring us to become the sole proprietors of our destinies.
