I wrote this poem for my math teacher, Natalie Weaver.
She has gone above and beyond any teacher I’ve ever had,
and I just wanted to give her something to let her know
Some people that come into our lives
Change our entire outlook on the world
These people breathe
strength and sustenance into us
Sometimes by just giving a simple word of
They teach us to stand, for everything we believe in
And let it magnify tenfold.
Sometimes by just being around them,
The story of our day takes a whole new chapter.
We see more of who we could become,
And what knowledge we can attain.
It’s quite something to imagine where these people
develop these qualities
Perhaps they fell from the sky,
Perhaps within a whisper in the wind,
Or maybe, just maybe,
They came from a source well known to them,
To which they now bare the name,
