    I enjoyed the different emotions expressed. When reading the first stanza, I was thinking how it was probably a feeling that many teachers can relate to! It can be so hard to say no but then the result can be having too much going on. I am glad that you had eager faces awaiting you!

    Amanda, your students are blessed to have a teacher like you. One who is willing to put aside the business of the day to notice them, to notice their learning. Your poem is beautiful!

    I really enjoyed the wording you used. Loved “my critical conscience is quieted by expressions on eager faces”.

    This is lovely. This is what you write when you have nothing to say? I want to read what you say on days you are more certain! This poem is a gift to your students – a gift that you are so present with them. Thanks for posting!
