The Classroom

QUIET, quiet, quiet!!!
Why won't these children listen?
They are constantly talking oblivious of the fact that their education is going down the drain.

Can't they see the opportunity that they have been given to elevate themselves?
Can't they see that some underpriviledged or unfortunate child would be glad to be in their position for just a day?

What a waste to plan a good lesson when you cannot execute it?
Sasha, Marie, Ann, Paul, Jerome SIT DOWN
Junior, DO not hit David with the ruler.
YES, yes, Monique, you may go to the restroom.
NO, no, Shanique, you may not sit in THAT seat!

    O darn...a typical school day po' teach!!! Better they are making noises, than killing each other like one boy tried to do today to another boy, the first day back at a Brampton Ontario Canada. Every time we send our children out to school, it should be with a prayer of guidance over them, because one knows not what is waiting out there. Good write friend!
