    "The secret in education lies in respecting the student."
    Ralph Waldo Emerson

    By Cleo V. Swarat 

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

    One was a teacher:
    the tools she used were books and music and art;
    One was a parent
    With a guiding hand and gentle loving heart.

    And when at last their work was done,
    They were proud of what they had wrought.
    For the things they had worked into the child
    Could never be sold or bought!

    And each agreed she would have failed
    if she had worked alone.
    For behind the parent stood the school, 
    and behind the teacher stood the home!
