View from the chair

Twas the day before break…

Twas the day before break…

Twas the day before break and all through the class,

not a student was learning, that time has passed.

The teacher was stressed, so much to do.

Her entire room covered in red glitter and glue.

The students excited, break plans in their head.

Working on a sugar rush from being happily fed.

Desks to be cleaned, lockers too.

No one wants to come back to find slimy goo.

Do some reading over break the teacher yells as they dash out of sight

Don’t spend it all on hours of fortnite.

Have a wonderful break she yells after them.

Knowing her vacation is about to begin.

She locks her classroom door and turns out the light.

Happy vacation to all and to all a good night!

    We loved winter vacations, but had heavy lifting with papers to write, etc. I was a good student, so didn’t mind, but it doesn’t seem like a real vacation when you have as much school work as usual, just not in class!!!

  7. Love the poem! And I love hearing it from the teacher’s point of view! #MixitUp
