Blog: Ten Months = Ten Haikus

Blog post from one of our first-year teachers…
August
The walls are falling
In around me I can’t
Handle this stress. Help
September
Slow and steady wins
The race is getter softer
Oh, hello there, LIFE
October
It is still blurry
Hazy memories of slogg-
ing through this unknown
November
Hey! A week off soon!
Thanks for a student who smiles.
And it’s my birthday
December
We watch movies, right?
Trying to work is futile.
But it’s short and sweet.
January
No longer new and
Terrifying but old and
So Exhausting
February
The sun sets at 4.
Parallel Structure saves me.
It’s easy (I think?)
March
Winter was short and
We’re starting to gel, (denial?)
Students…aren’t THAT bad
April
The state test is near
HOLD THE PHONE, this is all we
care about now. Sigh.
May
In May, failing schools
Show their true colors, chaos.
Is that a color?
