Out of the mouth of babes......

I was very brave this morning and set the task of writing a poem entitled
"Ten Things found in Teacher's Pocket".
You have to be feeling very at ease with yourself and ready for criticism to be able to handle the brutal honesty of children. And boy can they be brutal!.
This is a compilation of my favourite images/observations/pearls of wisdom.

Ten Things Found in Teacher's Pocket.
Innocent smiles of children
A Maths test (Yikees)
A bad child from 1791 that was passed down to her by her Great Grandfather
Anglo Irish Bank
A wig made entirely of pupils' hair
A prince she has captured on holidays
A massage chair to forget the stress
Sweets to eat in front of us
A pair of Christian Louboutin's most expensive shoes
And the nicest words a teacher can say "Now you can go out for a break."

Yep, there is no need to go for psychoanalysis in this job. They have me down to a tee!
