The New Teacher

The New Teacher

Four students of Dist. No 10
Are talking on the first day of school
They hadn’t seen the teacher yet
This one replaces our teacher Miss O’Toole.

Miss O’Toole
What a witch
Always threatening us
With that willow switch.

Maybe we can get away whispering
We can give it a try
We were so bad
We made Miss Blaney cry.

Miss Agatha
Never knew, you see
What happened outside at recess
She spent her time inside talking to Isaias V.

Miss Flora was really
Not so tuff
She put up with no nonsense
Sure nuff.

My gosh guys, look
We’ll have to change our plan
Our new teacher
Is a man.
