Parent Teacher Conference Day at LJH

October 22, 2012

On this day of parent-teacher conference at LJH, I am impressed with the importance of parents, teachers, grandparents and other significant adults working together to mold the character of precious young lives. This poem was given to me by a former teacher as a reminder.

Guiding Hand

I dreamed I stood in a studio
And watched two sculptors there.
The clay they used was a child’s mind
And they fashioned it with care.

One was a teacher-the tools she used
Were books, music and art.
The other, a parent worked with guiding hands,
And a gentle, loving heart.

Day after day, the teacher worked with a touch
That was deft and sure.
While the parent, standing by her side
Polished and smoothed it over.
And when their task was done,
They were pleased of what they had wrought,
For the things they had molded into the child,
Could never be sold or bought.

Both agreed they would have failed
If each had worked alone,
For behind the teacher stood the school
And behind the parent, the home.
