Because I Had a Teacher
By: Kobi Yamada
Because I had a teacher, I love to learn.
I discovered that I can do much more than I thought I could.
I realized it is okay when some things are harder than others.
I found that challenges can be fun.
Because I had a teacher, I discovered that there are lots of ways of being smart.
And I know that mistakes are just part of getting
I realized that some of the hardest things for me to do make me feel the proudest.
Because I had a teacher, I know how good it feels when someone is happy to see me.
I know that I can always ask for help.
I feel like I have a friend on my side.
I see that some of the most important things are said
Because I have a teacher, I have whole new worlds to explore.
I discovered that what I can imagine, I can make real.
And now I feel like I can do anything.
Because I had YOU, I learned to believe in ME.
