the ones I deemed, good, great, or bad;
I'd like to say, "Thank you for investing in me."
I was younger, really rebellious. and reckless,
but you pushed me to my potential
and encouraged me to not settle for any less.
I was plagued by youthful ignorance,
but you saw me as youthful innocence.
I was a hopeless,
at times scared,
but you listened (sincerely)
and actually cared.
I was lost from my own path,
and direction you gave me.
I didn't see my own worth,
but you helped show me.
I hope my kids will have teachers like you.
