Second Grade

Second Grade Poem

I want to teach my students more than lessons in a book;

I want to teach them deeper things that people overlook-

The value of a rose in bloom, its use and beauty, too.

A sense of curiosity to discover what is true;

How to think and how to choose the right above the wrong,

How to live and learn each day and grow up to be strong;

To teach them always how to gain in wisdom and in grace,

So they will someday make the world a brighter, better place.

Let me be a friend and guide, to give these minds a start

Upon their way down life's long road, then I'll have done my part.


Mrs. Cavanagh
