Happy Birthday, Dr. Seuss!

“YOU STAND YOUR TALLEST WHEN YOU KNEEL DOWN TO HELP A CHILD.”  -Dr. Phil

Today is Dr.Seuss’ birthday (Read Across America), so (hopefully) schools around the country are celebrating the art of READING!  Woot woot!

Here is a special poem I found that is very close to my heart given the populatino of students I teach.  I live and love to teach.

7 Hours of Sanity

7 hours of sanity

That’s what the school day means to me,

A place with heat, water and light,

And somewhere to rest after a sleepless night.

7 hours of sanity

That’s what the school day means to me,

A place where I can get two meals to eat,

And every day I attend, I have the same seat.

7 hours of sanity

That’s what the school day means to me,

A place to get a band-aid from the nurse,

And maybe antiseptic so it doesn’t get worse.

7 hours of sanity

That’s what the school day means to me,

A place i can jump rope and play basketball,

And see the gym teacher who is six foot tall.

7 hours of sanity

That’s what the school day means to me,

A place I can go to learn,

The ONLY place I’ll get a turn.
