May 25, 2017, Prescott-
The verdict came, this afternoon.
As I expected, the complex position,
with multiple and conflicting levels of supervision,
was judged not a good fit for me.
I will most likely work with teens, next academic year.
Adolescents have indeed been a better fit for me, over the years,
whenever discipline was part of the job.
Reason is important to me,
and I see childhood as not a time
for confusion or conflicting expectations.
Teens can reason with the unreasonable;
so can I, when they are unreasonable, themselves.
We will come upon a time,
when the children we call “indigo”
will have more on their plates,
than their still forming minds
For now, though,
whoever takes my place,
with the little ones,
will need to temper
the skill set of external control,
with a truly loving heart.
As for me, I am among the quickened.
No one in the head office wants me
I will go on working.
