[u]A Dua by a Muallim / Muallimah
O Allah, The Wise, The Bestower of Wisdom,
Help me to remember that I work with the most precious of all thy creation,
the innocent child.
Help me always to remember that I am leaving my mark on him/her,

And tolerance with those who refuse to learn.
When I have to chastise them, help me to do so <....
