Board Not Bored©

Day after day she writes on white board
Words in red, black, green markers poured
Spanish words tumble off her lips
As smooth and eloquent as the language is, she dips
Pulling out phonetics, conjugation, pronunciation
Patiently she teaches on language construction
Day after day repeat what was taught before
Adding on, building, expanding, teaching more
She teaches
Mind changes
Language acquisition is no easy feat
Determination is key, no room for incomplete
Each day new vocabulary being stored
Learning new language leaves no time to be bored

And in tribute to my teacher and month-long Spanish immersion, now in español:

Día tras día escribe en una pizarra blanca
Vertieron palabras de marcadores rojos, negros y verdes
Las palabras en español salen de sus labios
Tan suave y elocuente como es el lenguaje, se sumerge
Sacando fonética, conjugación, pronunciación
Pacientemente enseña sobre la construcción del lenguaje
Día tras día repetir lo enseñado antes
Agregando, construyendo, expandiendo, enseñando más
Ella enseña
Cambios de mente
La adquisición del lenguaje no es tarea fácil
La determinación es clave, no hay lugar para lo incompleto
Cada día se almacena nuevo vocabulario
Aprender nuevo idioma no deja tiempo para aburrirse
