The Handwork teacher

I am a mother to two beautiful girls and I teach Handwork and Fine Arts in our local waldorf charter school in Arizona.

I'm in a committee, I'm in meetings

So If you don't know what it is like to be in a waldorf school faculty meeting...let me give you a small peak into my world that I have been enjoying for the last week from 8AM on......

Oh, give me your pity, I'm on a committee,
Which means that from morning to night
we attend and amend and contend, and defend,
with out a conclusion in sight.

We confer and concur, we defer and demur,
And reiterate all of our thoughts.
We revise the agenda with frequent addenda,
And consider a load of reports.

We compose and propose, we support and oppose,
And the points of procedure are fun!
But though various notions are brought up as motions,
There's terribly little gets done.

We resolve and absolve, but we never dissolve,
Since it's out of the question for us.
What a shattering pity to end out committee,
Where else could we make such a fuss.
