The Class Conductor
The Class Conductor

The teacher conducts an orchestra.
She sets the tempo for learning.
Keeping a close eye on her score,
While stoking a fire that’s burning.

Her nods and stares are fruitful.
She smiles at those who try hard,
Like Jennie, Abigail and Francis G,
But frowns at those like Bern-ard.

The final outcome is most rewarding.
It’s greater than the sum of its parts.
She’s got those kids to give their best,
And she’ll be forever in their hearts.
