they didn’t just teach, or be great thinkers Like Einstein thinking and winking, Hawking flying through black holes and doing TV interviews
we are teachers, who have enough to do on any given day with that most precious cargo—–your children
we must meet this, paperwork that, password here, there, and everywhere
I just want to teach.
But, it seems like I always have a stack of impending deadlines, which want to get in the way of this magical day
I have a protective classroom force field, and I do not let “your” thing, get in the way of “our” thing
