Prep work on Holidays

Oh I am sad

I am sad today

For I get to start my school prep proper

Yesterday was the start of it

A novel I had to read.

Shameful the way I enjoyed it

Today, however, it’s not so fun

Today my work gets serious

And just like counting down til the end of term

I found myself counting to the start.

The kids I like,

The colleagues too,

The teaching part is satisfying

I love the challenge of pages of maths

I love the thrill of science

I really want to work with kids

It’s just that life’s not perfect

For eight days before school officially starts

I find myself unit planning.
