What a teacher knows

The education courses
and seminars and programs
at conventions can’t teach
the teachers the one critical
skill she needs: how to calm
and control 20 seventh-graders
while she simultaneously
tries to fix the only resistant
technology in the classroom:
the video player.

LOL! I taught seventh grade for many years, so completely identify with this, Glynn. Oh, but try 27 students instead. :)
