A DIFFERENT KIND OF SCHOOL 67
For a little child a teacher is special. It is difficult for a small
child to think of his/her teacher as an ordinary person.
Where do all the teachers go
When it’s four o’clock?
Do they live in houses
And do they wash their socks?
Do they wear pyjamas
And do they watch TV?
And do they pick their noses
The same as you and me?
Do they live with other people
Have they mums and dads?
And were they ever children
And were they ever bad?
Did they ever , never spell right
Did they ever make mistakes?
Were they punished in the corner
If they pinched the chocolate flakes?
Did they ever lose their hymn books
Did they ever leave their greens?
Did they scribble on the desk tops
Where Do All the
Teachers Go?
Where Do All the
Teachers Go?
