He Was The Music Man
He Was The Music Man

Mr Pankridge
was a totem pole,
red-haired, blue-mouthed militant,
Six-foot, tip-toeing, tangle-footed trip hazard.
“The Music Wizard”
or “Hanky Panky” if he’s grumpy.
He could spit Mussorgsky
across a classroom like a cherry stone.

My Favorite Teacher

It might have felt lost,
In the big world of old age pillars;
 once those tiny hands slipped away,
 from being her fathers fillers.

From afar came Her,
 Assuring him Of me;
and hers was I to take care of.

Coming in a windstorm,
Twirling her crazy,
Laughing maniacally
Loving us gladly.

We adore our fifth grade teacher.
She finds us all mad.
In a great and glorious way.
We are lively, and happy.

Best school year ever.
Feeling her crazy
Loving our lessons,
Enthusiasm sells!

Premium Member We are Wearing Pajamas Today
We are wearing pajamas today.
We are super heroes, butterflies, unicorns, and mice.
We have slippers with long rat tails.
Mine are gorillas with red light-up eyes.

One or two have tails.
My zebra suit has lost his tail.
Pulled off long ago,
But do not worry....Read More

I am sneaking in a bit of me time again.

This is a first grader’s day
I build a house! I build a house!
Another first grader chimes in.
It has a mouse! And maybe a louse!
Third first grader yells “Hey, that rhymes!”

Sparkling gold sequined top.
Glitzy shamrock necklace with twinkly silver chain.
Neon-green gemstone on one hand, pearl on the other.
Spider pin with a fat amber gemstone body and turquoise legs.
I threw on my multi-colored sparkly beads too, for good measure.

Premium Member Where is Our Real Teacher
Where is our real teacher?
Substitute teachers get asked this hourly.
Maybe even every eight minutes.

Sometimes I give a teacher a bathroom break.
Especially a pregnant teacher.
They need it more often.
And are so grateful!

A spaceship got her, I tell them.
Smiling smugly.
Watching their faces.

This is how a first grader’s day goes. 
Six of them are at a table playing with Legos
Which is kind of the new less-messy playdough of today.

Satisfied Teacher
By George P. Lumayag

I need not to be great!
I need not to be daring,
And I need not to be perfect,
I only care my students.

In the classrooms, in the Computer Lab,
And from school going home,
I am satisfied that my students
Listen, participate,...Read More

Miss Bee has a horsey face and looks truly old.

Her voice was scratchy, like a worn-out brillo cough.
