Unseen side of Education

There is an unseen side to Education

Hidden up the back of schools

Teachers work way past hard

In this location

Needy, needy children there.

It is not the fault of those children

Not the fault of anyone


Our special ed students are hard work

At times it is quite frustrating

But for all those times the joy that comes

When a child has a victory

When a child  masters a skill

When a sweet young man,

Barely in his teens

Comes up to shake your hand.

He is demonstrating his respect

For something you have done for him.

A soft grin that spreads to his eyes.

These are the times that make it worth it.
