In reality, more of a goal...

A Teacher's Invisible Muse

by Y. M. Roger

Teaching used to be a huge rush
and focused on student learning...
To see those little “lights go on”
far out-weighed a teacher’s earning
But now it seems a parent’s goal
is a
grade and not the knowledge
Their only care seems that
letter be
either an “A” or “B” for college.
So, after many parent meetings
handled with grace and urbanity
My muse, per se, is simply the goal

of preserving my sanity!
