Teacher’s Response in her head

I try really hard
to see and reward
the special
the original
the above and beyond
and sometimes
it is difficult
to let them know that they are special
to me and theirs’
as they are
That they are totally
and originally
authentically only them
is not good enough for them
because
as we adults know
there are
billions in that self same authentic
individual special category.
(Philip Larkin needs to be taught more…perhaps
cf For Sally Amis – Born Yesterday)
