First I became a teacher
and affected the cone of
like a guru and disciple
but they only saw residuals.
Then I heard ‘record keeping’ and I
found a way to put the relationship
between teacher and pupil
but they only saw record-keeping.
Then I gave into ‘objective-led lessons’
and created networks of powerpoints
of colourful Technisurroundvision
like a Hollywood movie
but they just saw that the writing was not on the board.
Now I hear ‘Assessment for Learning’
and am getting close to integrating
MTPs, level calculators, lesson plans and mark books
like a road map to a degree
but they have i-phones of Performance Management on
and aren’t listening anymore
I am truly sorry I had vision
and the will to make it a quality –
I should have kept quiet
I should have kept quiet.
