The Secret Powers of a Supply Teacher

Always on my best behaviour,

To the rescue, teacher’s saviour.

I come prepared, I feel the onus -

If planning’s left it’s just a bonus.

Armed with worksheets, pens and stickers,

Wet wipes, hair-bands and spare knickers.

A full PE kit in my boot,

With wellies and a nasal flute,

A hand-puppet and large maracas,

My friends and family think I’m crackers.

But modelling origami flowers

Is just a taster of my powers.

I teach on each and every theme,

In settings some would judge extreme.

Across the schools, I span key stages,

All for very meagre wages.

Fuelled by Merlot, tea and cake,

I leave them awe-struck in my wake

I work outside the laws of nature.

I am the Super-Educator!
