I’m participating with many teacher writers in the Slice of Life March Challenge. Thank you Anna, Beth, Betsy, Dana, Stacey and Tara of Two Writing Teachers for the opportunity. The slicing community of writers fills my head and heart every day. Read their musings here.
I left the meeting, head throbbing.
Paperwork, kid work, planning work still there
in my empty classroom.
Tables askew and
Post-its litter the ground.
The stack of papers teetering, threatening.
Maybe even taunting,
saying, okay, you asked for it.
I grab and sort.
Table by table.
The chaos tamed,
put down for the night
so it can rise again
