I don't usually pray.....

Well Lord, my kiddies are about to take the EOG's (End of The Grade test that state whether or not they pass on to the next grade). I don't usually pray, but even the most confident need help.

Please help Ma (cannot use original names when I don't have parent's permission to reference their child on AdultFriendFinder) stop whispering to his imaginary friend and laughing at each other's jokes. Well, at least give his imaginary friend the brain waves to whisper back the answers.

Please help Ch restrain the urge to break his pencil, tear the test into two, shove the answer sheet into his desk, and scowl like an enraged, rabies-infested gorilla when he doesn't know the answer.

Please help Ja to not pay attention to the microscopic speckle of red that somehow got on her pants and doesn't know how it got there, which will eventually remind her of those tiny red spiders that almost look fluorescent(though she will use the phrase, "glows in the dark" ). This is turn will remind her of her fear of spiders and inevitably cause her to look for them in the classroom. Eventually, her stare will be met back by a desperate teacher.

Please help remind Ki that she is still too young to be having crushes on boys. Please keep her eyes from roaming to her new infatuation's desk and start daydreaming of whatever 9-10 years old daydream about romantically. Please refrain her from lazily doodling hearts with "I (heart) MC" or "MC + KM" all over the answer sheet and the test booklet.

Finally, please help all of my students. Let their attention span to be at its finest. Let their thinking process be at its clearest. Let their ability to answer a question in the test book and bubble in the same question on the answer sheet with the utmost accuracy. Above all, please help them pass so that I don't have them again next year.

Behold the Teacher's End of the year Prayer & all it's Glory.
I remember Hearing that a few times a while back, weird part is,... I think I have said that one.

I believe in standards, but the EOGs have become a trial unto itself. The pressure on teachers and students is tremendous, and can't be good for learning! Did your school have a pre-test pep rally?

The joys and tribulations are right their in your post. Each child so different, with different needs and ways of learning. Some with parents that couldn't care, some from dysfunctional homes, and some from wonderful situations. God bless the teachers who meet that challenge every day.

That's you, dear swooness...

yes...the Teacher's End of the Year Prayer should be archived with the Dead Sea Scrolls and the film that shows who really killed JFK. But, luckily 3/4 prayers were answered...Ja ignored the red speckles, but not the blue ones...or green ones...or any other colors...

We did have a pep ralley in which th middle school ladies did a step routine and each grade performed a chant...really fun to see the kids excited and nervous all at once....

God bless the teachers who meet that challenge every day.

I may meet them, but I don't know how graceful I come out of them

And to the two gentlemen's deleted comments....

Thank you greendragon69 for respecting my wishes to remain a mystery. I know you will always be a knight-in-shining-armor, just do not forget the chivalry part (towards both sexes).

To Bonerazor, thank you for your comment. I do work hard and take pride in all my endeavors, both in the real world and interactive. Just remember that things shared in a private conversation should stay...well private.

Please continue to leave your thoughts and responses. I enjoy reading them and commenting on them. Plus, it makes me feel smarter.

Indeed, I thought about it afterwards and I apologize. At least now I have a better understanding of where your boundaries lay...though there is still much to learn about you.

Sometimes it's hard not to step in. Instead of using my sword I chose the mighty pen, my apologies to Bonerazor for inappropriately suggesting that he should change his name to something else.

She deleted it before I read it so I can only be indifferent about it.

    i spent my first year out of college teaching history and political science at the high school level. i don't envy the job you do, but have much respect for the fact that you do it. although i wonder how many marriage proposals you get from all the boys in your classroom! bless you.
thankfully, the boys still think girls have cooties
