The Teacher Who Laughs

The Teacher Who Laughs

I am the teacher who laughs
And my students laugh with me
Because learning should be fun
Not this scripted curriculum
Not that box of materials
Let's do an experiment
Let's read under our desks
Let's write poems of silliness
Childhood is too important
To only learn how to take tests.
During the month of April I did two poetry challenges, one for students and one for adults.  One of the adult challenges was to write a self-portrait poem.  This was my result.
