Poetic Words: Poems about Learning and Teaching

ImagePoetry Foundation has a nice feature on poetry about teachers and students. A little arch (PF mostly is), but still full of nice things, including an opening Frost quote:

Education is the ability to listen to almost anything without losing your temper or your self-confidence.


a good bit from another poet: 


 “Ars Poetica #100: I Believe” by Elizabeth Alexander


Poetry (and now my voice is rising)
is not all love, love, love,
and I’m sorry the dog died.


You can use the links as a kind of poetry play list to check out the poems.
