I went to school to teach

but as always

I became the student.

My way

was not as fun

as their way.

What they may

have lacked in

one area was more

than made up for

in another.

My students

wanted to learn

to spell, to read

to write,

but more import-

antly they wanted

to learn how to

be a better soccer

player, how

to make friends

at recess, how

to survive a

system where

everyone had a

number, and

everyone else

knew their

number, but

didn’t know

them.
