Good afternoon, Santa! Hello! How are you?
I’m writing a letter to check how you do?
I’ve been really good by the end of this season
And for this, there’s a very good reason:
I work as a teacher, yeah, that’s what I do.
I wake up at 5 and finish after 2.
I have a hundred children or something like that
They look up to me and that’s what they said:
“Holiday is near, people scream and shout,
do you hear?
Let’s write a letter to Santa, he is a kind old fellow.
I want a teddy bear and my favourite colour is yellow!”
You bring people hope and you bring people joy.
You bring my kids sweets and their favourite toy.
I’m too old for toys, but I think it is fair
That you give some attention to people who care.
This season of magic and season of hope
I want you to bring some peace to this globe.
As every teacher along with his child
Deserves to be happy and see the sunlight.
I want some respect and some trust from my school
They need to see person in me, not a tool.
I, too, want some time for my dreams to come true
As teachers who are tired can’t do what they do.
I want to be able to travel a lot
To see other countries and places I forgot.
I do try my hardest and day after day
I come to my classroom and silently pray
That soon times will come when a teacher like me
Will always be treated like a part of family.
To sum up my wishes, I want to believe
That you’re real, Santa, and can help me achieve
Whatever I want and whatever I need
To make 2024 the best year indeed!
