Along the way
A mentor you became
The day you stopped
And learned my name

You encouraged my creativity
And then
When my efforts slacked off
Made me try again

Along the way
You took the time
To inspire me
And improve my mind

More than a teacher
Of Reading and Math
More than a gatekeeper
On your administrative path

Along the way
Communities were built
On personal commitment
Filled with the passion you felt

You are part of our family
More than a friend
When you move on
Your legacy won’t end

For along the way
True character was found
In the young lives that were touched
While you were around
