Over the rim of her glass
my sister said -
Why don’t they share the good news too?
I found the teacher -
bags packed, dearly departed
Before she left
she asked others to do the same -
just seeds -
I’ll share this with my sister

Teacher's final wish granted with backpacks
Bex Tate, frustrated with the data driven education system,
recently left behind her job as a Kindergarten teacher to spend time
writing and pondering life. Writing poetry helps her to try and make
sense of the world...as well as giving her the chance to rant a bit!!
