It bubbles like the witches’ cauldron,
Plotting spells and hexes for
The unsuspecting teachers who
Dare to tread within their walls,
To tell them what to do.
I am really noticing a lot of anger coming from the students that I teach at the moment. I used to think it was because they hated me for some reason, but now I’m noticing that it’s actually a real hatred for the world around them.
One girl in my tutor group (who I have only been with for four afternoon slots) constantly glowers at me, like I’ve killed someone in her family. I have barely spoken to the girl but she is so angry she dare not even give me a chance.
What kind of life are they going to grow into, if they already feel this angry at such a young age? I do feel angry that they are not giving me a chance and that they want me to be a monster. But I also feel very sad for them. Anger hurts and I hope they can let go soon, before it totally ruins their lives.
