Teaching the Class Science

My first day


Middle School

talked of chemistry

conservation of mass

balancing reactivity

my chemistry

was reacting

as each lab bench

had a student



between the girls

one atom


matter is created

containing many


an individual

a hidden smile

bunson burner



orange periodic

table blue

this periodic map

well seated

to work

every child

goes crazy

with blue

Enjoyed this. Chemistry was my least favorite subject but your poetry is most creative.

You seem to be settling into your new life J. I wonder do you still hear that lonesome whistle blow, feel the breeze and hear the call of the Burning Man.

Thank you all for your support this morning. Jamie

Graham - Things didn't work out to well. Some family issues and the fact I was asked to resign from the Middle School due to my inability to manage 135 Middle Schoolers well enough has kinda stopped my career in Education. Education will have to become another passion on the side and it is back to the lab for me! Thank you for stopping by. Jamie

So sad when the administration comes down hard on a teacher. School politics can such sometimes. I am grateful that I can home-school my daughter.
