From the Teacher's Side of the Desk
Poems to make you laugh about your job.

The First Day of School     by Mrs. Stelle

What if...
I walk in the classroom
get asked lots of questions
and I don't know what to say?

Then the principal wants me,
the lunch tastes funny,
and my last year's best friend's moved away?

What if ...
they all think I'm ugly,
my underwear shows,
and my armpits start to drip sweat?

My hair looks bizzare,
there's a new style of shoes,
and I haven't got any yet?

If you see someone who's worried
about these things and more
when classes start up again each year,

Be kind, be a friend,
give a smile and say "hi"
'cause that person is me-
your new teacher.
