  • It was early, rainy, and the weather was rather warm and muggy outside,
    but we were forced to sit in class for fifty minutes with no air, feeling sweat between our thighs.
    Imagine sitting on a crowded bus filled with people on a hot August afternoon,
    you still would not begin to understand the discomfort we felt in this classroom.
    I ask myself, why does the teacher keep closing the door?
    We all know heat rises but must we be tempted to sit on the floor.
    The hallway, although very noisey and distracting, is the only way we can get some relief,
    but the question remains - can we trust these students to not show mischief?
    The room was sweltering hot, should I open the door - I dare not!
    You see, Im just a visitor patiently serving my time,
    There are many things I would do differently if this classroom were mine.


    I would start the day with a smile and not negative greetings,
    I would teach with conviction and participate in staff meetings.
    Please don't get me wrong, I appreciate the hospitality that I have been given
    I have learned the do's and don'ts of what to do daily, even
    Standing in front of class watching the teacher speak negatively with no conviction.
    The students try to impress her with jokes and positive jestures, but she just stares at
    Them with unforgiving pleasures. No smile or reasurrance when they are doing good,
    But many unwelcomed comments when their behavior is misunderstood.
    You see, I'm just a visitor patiently serving my time,
    There are many things I would do differently if this classroom were mine.
