Where, Oh Where, Has Cool Cat Teacher Gone?
I’m still here working away
leaving my blogging for another day.
I love it when some casually say
“I’d love to be a teacher & relax one day!”
Little do they know the joy and the pain
the loss of sleep and frustration of gain (weight gain that is!)
Tis not a profession for the weak of heart nor puffed up of mind
stuffed shirts wouldn’t make it a day in my class, I find.
While others debate teachers have jobs to do,
until the final bell rings, we’re never through.
Perhaps you’ll remain and be here when I return with a burst
but for me, as always, my classroom comes first!
(I miss blogging and somewhere in the back of my mind, I hope I won’t “lose” readers, however, if I’m going to do this thing for the long haul (as I plan to) – I have to be a binge blogger, I guess.)
