I wrote this poem for some students who were frustratingly reluctant to learn. No matter what I tried, they resisted. I thought a light yet heartfelt sentiment from their teacher at Christmas might help them to realize that we're all on the same team. I received a lot of positive feedback from students and a few parents alike.
You'll be downloading my original poem (all 14 stanzas) which I left intact so that it would read well. You'll need to change the name, room number, subject, and gender to your specific situation.
