Walking in Love
I strolled into my school today, thinking I'd set up a few things in my classroom
My principal, who is not known for her tact, said,
" where have you been?"
I was taken aback
"It was summer, wasn't it?"
She said "we've been trying to call you for 2 weeks.
I decided to move you to a new grade level and a new room.
The teacher who is going into your room wanted to set up , so we moved your stuff."
I said, "I changed my phone number"
,thinking to myself,
"I'm gonna do this every year, or else give them a fake one."
Well all my stuff had been moved by the other teachers and THROWN in a pile on the floor.
I was not upset at all, while they were doing this , I was lounging at the beach.
The teacher who had been in this room before never threw anything away.
There were still record albums in there!
And does anybody remember those purple ditto sheets?
I worked all morning till my back hurt, then asked the principal for a key
She said "you're not supposed to be in the office"
I had my IPOD on and Bob Marley was singing
"Dont' worry about a thing, cause every little thing is gonna be all right"
So I just smiled and gave her one of my earphones
then she laughed and asked me what I wanted
so old Bob works his magic from beyond the grave!
I'm gonna have an awesome year!
If people throw hate at me, I'm gonna throw love back!
I will love my new assignment, teaching intervention to K, 1st and 2nd grades plus I will have 3 multi disabled children who are wheelchair dependent, non verbal and must be fed and changed.
It's a real spiritual sort of feeling , working with people in that elemental level.
I'm going to have a good year
I decided already
