Thanks for all of your hard work this semester. Enjoy your time with your family and friends. See you in 2016!
The children were crazy, I was losing my cool!
Their papers aren't finished, they don't want to work
But when I try to make them, I feel like a jerk!
I'm tired, I'm cranky, these kids have it coming
But I stop and think, what a Scrooge I'm becoming!
So I tune out their chatter and I try to enjoy
The last days before Christmas with each girl and boy
They are so excited, and buzz with holiday cheer
And then homemade presents begin to appear
Re-glittered and fashioned with craft sticks and glue
And of course there's a "Best Teacher" mug....or two
The last day, they come as candy crazed creatures
But then it's TWO WEEKS of break...
I love being an educator!
