The lines laid down, they loop in larger hoops
With holes so large, it’s kinda easy
To swoop your way through, and yes, they do.
One day soon, I will find a way to tie those loops,
To block the troops that march from left and right,
Up and down, trying desperately to
Find a way around my words that school.
I’m pulling my hair out at the moment. Because. Kids. Are. Sneaky. They seem to have found every way that they can to make this online teaching thing really hard.
To start with, they have this tendency to log on and then just disappear. It means that they are registered as being present but actually they’re off doing something else and haven’t listened to a word.
I’m feeling so frustrated with it and I just really needed to vent. I sent a small piece of work and only 62% of the class bothered to send anything in. I know it’s because these people haven’t even been listening to the lessons and it just makes me think of all those time in my life that I have tried to get away with the bare minimum.
We’ve all done it, so it’s not like I can get too angry at these kids. It seems to be a human flaw to want to always find the path of least resistance. I now see how frustrated my bosses must have been when I was knackered and just did as much as was needed to not get into trouble.
I think if we want to be good humans, we need to start trying to do everything we can. It should feel good to do a good job, so why not? I find it amazing what I learn from the kids about myself and the way I should act. I just wish that they would do the bloody work!!!!
