Comments: A Letter From The Teacher: The Transformative Power Of ARRRRRR!

My daughter would have a Beatnik Cafe day at the end of her poetry block to help her 7th graders get involved with their own poetry. It was enjoyable enough that other teachers would come in during their off periods to participate. It was one of the hits of the year. I'm not sure what she did to transform the room beyond little light except on the "stage" and bongos.

Oh, how blessed are the children who have such wonderful teachers!!! If only we could get rid of the over-paid 'administrators' and give that pay to teachers. They deserve to be paid 'top dollar' for the wonderful gift of learning that they give to children.
To all the money that is wasted on nonsense in our school systems, I say...ARRRRRRRR;-)
