A Teacher’s Day

A Teacher’s Day

Thursday: first-block
planning. Woke at 5:30.
Moved slower to work.

Block two: two sleepy,
face-to-face. The rest on Zoom.
Stand and deliver.

Intervention block:
systematically, I
dole out make-up tasks

The cutie came to
fourth-block planning, thinking he
had class. Wrong day, bud.

Afternoon-sun shines
through large glass, tucked snug between
whitewashed cinder blocks.

One parent meeting
before it’s home to run up
and down my street block

During the month of November, I will be joining Teach Write in the #Gratiku challenge, in which we write and share a gratitude haiku (or other poemish piece) every day in November. I may not write every day, but I will certainly try my best.

If you’re a teacher of writers (or a writer… don’t have to be a teacher) and you’re looking for a supportive group of other writers to encourage you along your writing journey, check out Teach Write.
