  24. 25. Reflections/Comments What I am taking away today,… What I still hope to get,….
  25. 26. That Noble Title Teacher A s you begin this school year, may you remember the fine nuances and the distinguishing essence of that proud word Teacher . Let you be reminded of the tools you have at your command, because of your talents, your traits, and your training…and because you chose to become a Teacher. Teacher – you are a poet, as you weave with your colorful magic language a passion for your subject. You create a vast and grand mosaic of curiosities to imagine, secrets to unfold, connections only to begin the cycle of learning. Teacher – you are a physicist, as you bring magic, logic, reason, and wonder to the properties, changes and interactions of our universe. Teacher – you are a maestro, a master of composing as you conduct and orchestrate individuals’ thoughts and actions from discordant cacophony into harmonic resonance. Teacher – you are an architect, as you provide each student a solid foundation, but always with a vision of the magnificent structure that is about to change. Teacher – you are a gymnast, as you encourage the contortions and gyrations of thoughts and the flexing and strengthening of ideas. Teacher – you are a diplomat and the ambassador of tact and sensitivity, as you facilitate productive, positive interactions among the multiplicity of personalities and cultures, beliefs, and ideals. Teacher – you are a philosopher, as your actions and ethics convey meaning and hope to young people who look to you for guidance and example. -Trish Marcuzzo Omaha Public Schools
