Teachers come in many forms,
And when you least expect them.
The lessons that they bring you
Let you know you should respect them.

Just when you think that all is well—
That life is going fine.
There comes a teacher in disguise
As part of God’s design.

The teacher may disturb you.
He or she many cause you pain.
But it’s precisely this you need
To know that learning does remain.

For never do you reach the end.
No human does achieve perfection.
Your teachers help you see this
And give you reason for reflection.
