Superwoman flies into work
ready to battle ignorance
and defend the rights of all.
After her first sip of coffee
she begins her fight.
I watch her leap into action,
lassoing misspelt words
and pinning down clumsy sentences.
She stands up to unsolved equations
multiplying and dividing them at will
until they cower
She reassures roomfuls of children,
and maintaining peace
when all others
would quiver and flee.
After each long day of invigorating,
influencing and improving young minds,
she picks up her handbag,
dashes through the school gate
and speeds home to a well earned sleep.

Very cool. I like this poem because I like super masks and capes. I like the second stanza the best, especially the ‘pinning down clumsy sentences’ line. You are super cool at writing this poem!
Thanks for your comment. I love that you know the word stanza! Do you have a teacher who is a superhero?
Yes, I do have a teacher who is a superhero. His name is Mr Smith.
Good poem! it reminds me of my class teacher, she is like a
Thanks! Have you told your teacher that she is a superwomen? I think she’d like to hear that.
I liked this poem because teachers are kind of like super hero’s and my old teacher was kind, but my teacher now is the best (my Grammy)!
It sounds like your grandmother is a superhero!
That was a great poem. I liked that you said that teachers are super heroes. Also why did write this poem?
I wrote this poem because I’m a teacher, and so are a lot of my friends. I think they are like superheroes.
I liked how you said that the teachers were superheroes. My favourite part had to be the end “After each long day of invigorating, influencing and improving young minds, she picks up her handbag, dashes through the school gate and speeds home to a well earned sleep.” Why did you write this poem?
I’m a teacher! 🙂
I liked how you put teachers as superhero’s
A lot of the teachers I know are superheroes. Is you teacher one?
I liked how super woman was doing everything to stop problems where ever there are. Thanks for the great poem Kristin.
You’re welcome Dinith,
Do you have a teacher like superwoman?
I love how you referred to teachers as superheroes. Very creative!
I am a teacher as well as a poet, but I was referring to some of my friends, not to myself. They are super heroes!
Teachers are great and they don’t get enough for what they do and they don’t get treat correctly either so if we showed some more respect it would be great. ❤️
I agree, teachers are great!
hi Kristin I really liked your poem.
its super cool
I really like this poem because I think that teachers are superheros because they educate us. I think you chose the right decision of righting a poem about teachers.
I think you should show this poem to your teacher!
When I raed this poem I feel both my mam and my teachers are superwomen. So do I one day as I like to be a teacher and mam.
I like your superwoman poem because its got action and its like a teacher at my school.
Make sure you show the poem to your teacher, and tell her she’s like a superwoman!
You must an outstanding teacher. I like this unique poem.
You must have a lovely teacher!
Actually, I am a teacher! I wrote the poem about the teachers I work with.
Teachers really are lifesavers. Many peoples’ futures depend on how well teachers educate them. But apparently, teachers are underpaid.
My mum is like a superwoman if we make a mistake she will help us to correct it.I like your poem.
Your mum sounds fantastic. Have you told her that she’s like superwoman?
I’m glad you have a nice teacher! He sounds great.
My teacher is not the best she is sometimes annoying, your teacher sounds better than mine.
The poem is a great way to make school work sound more fun and get young kids to pay attention and learn because a lot of kids like superheros. They also probably think it would be cool to have a superhero in their classroom. The superwoman probably also loves the equations and getting to know the kids more. My teacher is a superwoman herself because she extends young minds to more advanced tasks, allows you to work in groups and is a very nice teacher. A lot of kids would probably like this poem. I myself liked the poem because I thought it was quite cute.
I’m glad your teacher is a superhero. Make sure you tell her.
