Grant me many pre-booked days
At perfect schools with fab TAs.
And failing that an early call –
Not too far, with classes small.
Let all the traffic lights be green,
Allowing me to slip unseen
Into the class before the bell,
To suss things out, my fears to quell.
May there be planning comprehensive,
A working whiteboard interactive,
Daily schedule on display,
Lovely weather; no wet play,
Staff who show me to the loo,
Smile and offer up a brew,
Kids who know their own maths places,
Eager, smiling, happy faces.
I’ll challenge and differentiate,
Their little minds to educate.
But please don’t leave me much to mark;
I’d like to leave before it’s dark.
If these demands are not denied,
My super-powers will be supplied.
I’ll meet the needs of wild or passive,
To educate the Primary Massive.
