Use this to key in student grades after logging in


Inspiration hits with a flash, stories written on the go. A rumble of laughter and the tale is heard only in echoes. The wind blows me in a new direction. Whom shall I visit next?

It's time to write, to start the rite

It's time to key in grades tonight,

For if I'm late, procrastinate,

They'll thump the ones who hesitate.

And so again I fetch my pen

The red one I use now and then

To do my chores and give out scores

And toss them out like apple cores.


Ah, click and clock! Ah, tick and tock!

Deadline slides like a shuttlecock

I type and tab, and not too shab,

I, class by class, etch on my slab

I pang, I pine! 12:59!

The last class grade slides in on time,

And, glad at heart, I've done my part

At midnight-ten, my dreams will start!

I think many teachers can empathize with this poem.
