At the Chalkface

Classroom, Old, One-Room, School


Thirty years before the chalkface

Wearily I stand

Korczak, Vygotsky, and Dweck as well

Feature in my lesson – planned


Yet for all the experience and the prep

Notes will still make their rounds

Doodles filling pages blank

And whispers start when I turn around


But I am patient, and I understand

Longevity in teaching has taught me such

I know that learning will in the end be had

If I use a firm but gentle touch




Weekend Writing Prompt #133 – Longevity
