This Is Why I Wanna Be A Teacher - Part 1

What are the characteristics of a teacher? 
Always, this question, I hear. 
There are teachers out there more interesting than a bleacher. 
I wanna be a teacher that treats students like a dear. 

I remember experiments from teachers because I experience it. 
These are the best experiences you could ever have. 
I remember elements from these creatures because I have once distanced it. 
These are the worst distances you could ever have. 

Teachers that create long-term memories are effective teachers. 
Teachers that ate up long-term memories are not collective teachers. 
Students that create long-term memories are effective students. 
Students that bait long-term memories are defective students. 

One characteristic of an effective teacher is that they don’t teach. 
Absurd and ridiculous, I know it sounds this way.
One metaphor of great teachers are that they’re a beach. 
Bird and meticulous, they soar free with teaching and teach best by play. 

Good teachers care, know the content, 
Expect high levels, and are great performers. 
Great teachers dare, like the rules to be bent, 
Expect no devils, and are great informers.  

Physical, emotional, intellectual, 
And spiritual are the best ways to learn. 
Biblical, proportional, conceptual, 
And lyrical are of no concern. 

This is why I want to be a teacher. 
So stop asking, please. 
This will really help me mature. 
So stop bugging and looking, geez oh wheez.
