Start of Term

2 09 2013

Back 2 School

I stumbled accross the following words of wisdom. I do not know the original source of these words but they seem apt:


“Twas the night before school started and all through the town

All the teachers were groaning…a disturbing sound!

By 10 they were all wasahed and tucked up in bed,

where the memories of children filled them with dread!

New pencils, newfolders, new registers too.

New classes, new grey hairs their anxiety grew.

The parents just giggled when they heard of this fright,

“You’ve have 6 weeks off. They’re all yours, so tough shite!!

I love it and feel that it acurately sums up my current mood as I am due to start back at school after a wonderful break tomorrow.

To anonomyos author, I take my hat off to you for capturing the spirit of the moment so completely.

And to all teachers everywhere – have a great start of term and a wonderful & productive academic year!

I’m glad that I’m not going back to school as a student or back to work as a teaching assistant. You’re right that this is a perfect snapshot of how most teachers and parents feel.
I hope you have a great year with students who are eager to learn.
