5 Days and Counting....

No, I don't watch the Simpsons, I don't enjoy it, but I have something to celebrate. We, as teachers, have 5 days, count 'em, one week of school left before Winter Break....WOOHOO! And boy do I need a break. Now, I know what all those non-teachers are just had a break, and you get over two weeks for Christmas Break, and you get summer vacation....blah, blah, blah. I know everyone works hard at their job, but if I have to feel someone poking me (my big pet peeve and they know it) or hear "Miss Savage" much more, I might really scream. Oh, how I do love children :) I got this song below in an email at school and thought it was appropriate....

Working in an Elementary School (or any school in that manner),
Sung to the tune of "Walking in a Winter Wonderland"

Children scream,
They're not listening.
When they go,
We're not missing 'em.
In all of this pain,
We try to stay sane,
Workin' in an elementary school.

Christmas comes,
They're excited.
Though or nerves,
They've ignited.
They're off the walls,
They run in the halls,
Workin' in an elementary school.

In the lunchroom we can hear 'em yellin'
And we know that they are really wound.
Someone hits, the other says "I'm Tellin'!"
And that's when our heads begin to pound.
Pretty soon,
We'll be restin'
Cause our nerves,
They've been testing,
We're happy it's clear,
It comes just once a year,
Workin' in an Elementary School!
I promise I really do love my job....I just need some time to recoup and relax for the rest of the year. Let the countdown begin!


  1. Too funny! Yes, yay for 5 more days!! My name gets said so often in class that I swear I am going to change it!

  2. Yay for 5 more days! And a big BLAH BLAH BLAH to all the non teachers out there! :)
