In honor of Saint Patrick’s Day, please enjoy this collection of not-quite-Irish blessings I wrote for all the teachers in my life!
May your lessons go smooth
And your patience be strong
And when you’re observed
May nothing go wrong
May the hands raise to greet you
May students walk calm behind your back
May recess sun shine warm upon your face
And ‘til the buses leave again
May good listening always reign across the land
There once was a teachin’ profession
Which is sometimes considered a blessin’
For a teacher it’s true
There’s just so much to do
It’s much more than just teachin’ yer lessons
May you always be granted:
Children who listen, parents who understand
Principals who support, and lessons that land
Copiers that work, books that are loved
Directives that always make sense from above
Supplies when they’re needed, and storage when not
Time for the restroom, and coffee that’s hot
Happy St. Patrick’s Day, everyone! Let me know which of my “blessings” rang truest for you!
And on this Friday, love and luck to you all.

So very clever! Like the leprechaun 🍀 and a lovely start to the morning. Makes me wonder if all of those blessings come true, teachers might not battle with the rollercoaster of unrealistic expectations. Cheers 🍻 to your take on this!
When I started to read your teacher blessings, of course the 1st one was perfect. Then I read the 2nd one and thought that one was perfect, the the 3rd and the 4th. So if it’s ok with you, I would love all 4 teacher blessings especially since I have 5 more school days before spring break! Clever slice!
These are just great and each one is different. Such a cool idea.
These are absolutely perfect. Thanks for sharing
