Countdown to Summer.

Middle School. Its the worst. But the St. Louis Public Schools Automated Substitute System has been stingy the last couple of mornings, so here I am.

Mr. Lowe has "Countdown to Summer 07" written on the corner of his blackboard. The magic number is 148.

148 days of school left this year,
148 days of school.
Mark me down, then let me clown,
147 days of school left this year.

At some middle schools the students eat breakfast during homeroom. This is one of those middle schools. On the menu this morning was "Pancake Rolls." What is a Pancake Roll? Imagine a breakfast corndog. Progress is an amazing thing.

Progress is focusing on education so strongly that teachers are even counting the days until they can go home. Mr. Lowe seems like a great guy, who really cares about helping each and every kid, honestly he does*.

Mr. Lowe was not really a good teacher, all we did was take notes from the minute we walked in...and until we left.
