Thank you all for allowing me to share some thoughts with you on this teacher blog during the month of August. Many of you are already back at school; my new school year will start on Tuesday, September 2nd.
So, what’s been running through my head as I approach this new school year? Well, the first thing I have to overcome is the night before the first day of school. Thus (and with apologies to Clement Clarke Moore), I submit my efforts at sharing my reality — tinged with humor.
However, you already know that I give homework… and this is your task. After you have read the poem, YOU finish the last line!
(If any of you are so inclined to add a verse or two, I would be delighted!)
My best wishes for a school year that fulfills most of your dreams… always leave room for serendipity!
And… here it comes:
‘Twas the night before school
and all through the house
the cats were all sleeping
and so was my spouse.
