The Teacher’s Hell

The kid passes, the kid did well,
The kid fails, the teacher’s hell,
No matter what the kid must win.

You push and shove,
Dispense tough love,
Encourage and praise,
Forgo a raise,
Work a sixty hour week,
Mark until your sight’s weak,
Go all day without a break,
Chase those who do no work,
No time even for the toilet
Work ’til the car park’s shut,
The ever open staff room door,
The ever open teaching war.
Leave a class to ring a mother,
Then wonder why you bother,
Few are grateful for your effort,
Refuse to see you as an expert,
Clearly you don’t know your job
If their child is such a flop.

The kid passes, the kid did well,
The kid fails, the teacher’s hell.

  1. This is so true. Teachers aren’t recognized, respected, or paid for the job they do! But hammered for the failure of a child.
