'Twas the Week Before Christmas'

(A Christmas Poem for Teachers)

'Twas the week before Christmas and all through the school

The children were crazy, I was 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

Be-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 A TEACHER!
