Twas the night before Christmas – Teacher styleeee…

We couldn’t resist posting this!! Its too true…. 

Thank you Christine for finding it for us…..

‘Twas the night before Christmas
And all through the school
The teachers were trying
To keep their cool.

The hallways were hung
With Christmas art
(Some made in November
to get a head start!)

With holiday shirts
And jingle bell jewels
The teachers looked festive
Enforcing the rules.

When out of the teachers lounge
There came a chatter
The principle went in
To see what was the matter.

The teachers were hiding
And trying to refuel
On coffee and cookies
And treats from the Yule.

When what to their wondering
Ears do they hear
But the ringing of school bells
It’s the children they fear!!

More rapid than reindeer
The little ones come
And the teachers all shouted
And called them by name.

Walk Vincent! Walk Tanner
Walk Tyler and Sammy
Sit Jamie! Sit Laura!
Sit, Tara and Tammy!

To your desks in the room!
To your spots in the lin|!
Now walk to them! Walk to them!
No running this time!

So straight to their places,
The children all went.
With fear of detention
Where they could be sent.

With manuals of lessons
Cradled in arms
The teachers began
To use all their charms.

But the lessons presented
All fell on deaf ears
The children were thinking
Of Santa’s reindeers!

With a toss of their hands
They put their manuals aside
Went straight to the cupboards
Where videos hide.

And laying their finger
On the TV remote
They sat back to write
Their Christmas tree note.

But you could hear them exclaim
At the end of the long day
Have a wonderful, happy and
LO-O-O-O-O-O-O-NG HOLIDAY!!!
