_*On Pay-days I don't Laugh as Corrupt Officers and Others do, But by the Next day I Love to come with a Smile to those that I Teach ...*_

_Because I am a Teacher •••_

_*The main Source of My Satisfaction is when I see them Grow. I See them Succeed. I See them having all those Assets. I See them Bravely Face the World and its Challenges. And I Say yes I have Taught in Spite of Living in a World Opened by Google...*_

_Because I am a Teacher ••• Yes I am a Teacher •••_

_*It doesn't Matter how they Look at Me,  It doesn't Matter how much more they Earn than I Do.*_

_*It Doesn't Matter that they Drive while I Walk because All what they have is through Me, A Teacher ...*_

_*Whether they Acknowledge Me or Not ... I am a Teacher ....*_
