The think Mrs. Daniels doesn’t get is there is a lot of prayer going on in schools already, heck I pray all the time.
I pray little Johnny won’t show up so I can teach.
I pray little Suzie makes even the slightest bit of effort.
I pray my administration will back me up if there is a problem.
I pray the crazy parent doesn’t blame me for failing their child. I pray they understand that rarely coming, doing no work and disrupting class is grounds for failure. I pray my administration understands that too.
I pray that when my vice principal walks in she is more concerned with my teaching than my standards based bulletin board.
I pray my family understands that I have more work than I can possibly do in the day and I will make up the time I am missing with them when I can.
I pray downtown realizes that teaching kids things like discipline and a work ethic is more important than just passing them through to keep up the districts numbers. I pray they realize teachers are valuable assets not easily replaceable cogs.
I pray Tallahassee leaves education alone. They have done enough damage.
I pray President Trump can find a person other than Betsy DeVos the most unqualified candidate ever to run the department of education. Sir, I know she gave you a ton of money, but educating our kids not rewarding her should be your top priority.
I pray society understands that closing schools and privatizing education is not the answer and investing in education is. I also pray they stop blaming teachers for societies ills and will realize we have to stop ignoring and finally address poverty f we want to see real improvement.
I pray wall street types and hedge fund managers, you know those behind the wave of charter schools, virtual schools and voucher legislation grow a conscience and realize our children are more important than filling their wallets.
Yeah, I pray in school all the time. There is no way I could get through the day without doing so.
