A hundred years from now it will not matter what my bank account was,

the sort of house I lived in, or the kind of car I drove . . . . but the world may be
                           different because I was important in the life of a child."  -  Kathy Davis

    
 
I Am Your Student


 

I am your student.
Today I come to school as everyday, with no breakfast.
I will go home to an empty house.
My parents are too busy for me.
I am your student,
Care about me.


I am your student.
I live with my mother.
I don't know my dad.
I have been in four schools in two years.
I am your student,
Have patience with me.

I am your student.
My mother and father can't speak English.
They can't help me.
I want to do well,
I am your student,
Help me to fit in.

I am your student
I don't like school
I want to learn about life,
I want to do things with my hands
I shake and get nervous when I have to write an exam
I am your student,
Help me to stay in school.

I am your student
My family has a lot of money
I have everything I could want
I wear the latest clothes and I put others down who are not like me
I am your student,
Help me to be tolerant of others.

I am your student
I am very quiet and shy
I cannot work in a noisy classroom
I find it hard to make friends
I am your student,
Help me to cope with daily life.

I am your student
I am hearing impaired,
Please don't ignore me because I can't communicate well
I need you to accept me and believe in me
I am your student,
I need you to reach my potential.

I am your student,
Adults in my life are very abusive
I get into trouble
I fight with others
I am your student,
Help me learn to be peaceful.

I am your student
I have a learning disability
Do not look upon me as a burden
I am your student,
Teach me the skills I need.

I am your student,
I miss a lot of school
I use drugs and alcohol
My marks are poor
I am your student,
Help me to accept myself.

I am your student,
Care for me,
Teach me
Help me to be a good person.

I will remember you forever.
