They’re flipping crazy after Christmas

Those students, they were swinging from the light strips

And climbing up the walls, clawing at the blinds

Just like little zombies, desperate for my blood.

I’m sure that over the holidays, their parents

Plugged them into computer games, ignored

And pumped with E numbers, on an unnatural high.

So now us teachers have struggle

Getting them under some sort of control

As we get pelted with glue sticks and pink highlighters

While we cry, huddled underneath our desks.

To all the teachers out there, who went back this week and endured a very bad day as we tried to get some sort of control – I feel your pain. We are strong and we are good at our jobs. Don’t let the b*****ds grind you down.

Much Love

    Ah, yes, the first week back to school. It’s so hard, isn’t it, Rachel? It shows, too, that students really need regular interaction (preferably with their families) and support. Those who don’t get it come back to school desperate for any attention they can get. It’s so challenging for teachers, and I give everyone who teaches credit for going in there and doing it again. And again. And again. What you do does matter. It does make a difference.
