  17. 17. I Will Believe (as recorded by Monte Selby: www.monteselby.com Chorus: I will believe, every child I teach is a flame of hope, burning brilliantly. A strong heart and mind, seeking out my hand, It’s within my reach. This I believe. In the middle of each town, in the heart of every school Behind a desk in a classroom, is a single child for whom This moment is the difference, where the road is mapped and planned As childhood waves goodbye, not yet a woman or a man. Repeat Chorus: I am here by choice, right where I want to be The challenge is great, to inspire and lead But how proudly they achieve. How profoundly they understand. How their laughing spirit soars, and I promise again. Repeat Chorus:
