This is one of those weeks…
Forgive me, I came to school even though I was too sick to be there,
It came after a weekend long iPad Conference,
Up from 1-6 early Monday morning, sick as could be,
I knew I was not well enough to be at school,
But I also knew I had to come in,
An early morning conference,
A last rehearsal before the grade level performance,
The Q & A with three principal candidates after school that I was facilitating,
I knew I should have stayed home, but I didn’t.
Hopefully nobody will be sick because of me.
Thanks to William Carlos Williams for the original poem and Gail Carson Levine for the modern inspiration.
