Book Description

This collection brings together 101 of Breaux's poems, from which teachers and school staff can draw continued motivation and enjoyment.

I Teach
I light a spark in a darkened soul
I warm the heart of one grown cold
I look beyond and see within
Behind the face, beneath the skin
I quench a thirst, I soothe a pain
I provide the food that will sustain
I touch, I love, I laugh, I cry
Whatever is needed, I supply
Yet more than I give, I gain from each
I am most richly blessed--I teach!
--Annette Breaux
