Clad in black and brown, straight and curly, long and short tresses.
Each one so utterly different.
Wearing the coded uniforms, there are all the loved of a parent or two. An array of God’s created humanity and the hope for the future.
Elementary, with feet poised on the edge of mid-youth immaturity leaving childhood behind as they climb in and out of schools’ transports systems,
Exhibiting similar behaviour patterns yet unique and beautiful. Made in God’s image. Suzi sits compliant and strangely quiet; so easy to teach while Joss, like some others, is openly non-compliant, troublesome, difficult to teach and yet unforgettable.
In a system held together by rules and rule enforcers of whom I am one. Housed in safe buildings designed for easy access yet encircled by iron fences, in a culture rife with gun violence.
The purpose is for learning not only from books but from each other. Like native wildflowers in early bloom in a garden planted and tended by God’s creation, are the children. They must grow strong.
Adults; men and women find their purpose in this milieu. Bighearted, kind and strong, giving love and sowing legacy seeds into the future. We call ourselves teachers and assistant teachers but we are students too.
