The Day You Cry | A Poem by a Middle School Teacher

El día en que lloras: un poema por una maestra de intermedia

 Read in English      Leer en español

Each time someone I have just met learns I’m a middle school teacher, I’m met with comments like: “You’re crazy!” or “Wow, you’re brave”. And you know what? They are probably right. I don’t have kids of my own, but as a middle school teacher, I feel so much like a mother. And although I love teaching impressionable young minds, and sometimes even think my students are cool (don’t tell them), they do let me down once in a while.
