Inner-City Teaching

Epiphany in Baltimore reports (quite casually) that his classroom has had a bucket-filling leak since Thanksgiving, and that a ceiling tile recently fell on one of his students during class. Now he's discovered that there are mushrooms growing under his book case. Lovely. How is it that we are letting kids go to school in conditions like these?

Gosh, thats bad. Parents should really look into the matter. It is dangerous for their kids to be in a school with conditions like these.

Hello, Got Mushrooms?
I remember a particular unfriendly fungus that was growning on my classroom wall. I just happened to look up one day, prior to a weeks rain last year that watered the April flowers, and there it was stearing back at me. Well, who invited you? Have you dropped in to learn a thing or two? What did I do about it? Well, I asked could I stay late, and have someone scrape it off, and repaint, but "No!" was the answer. So, I asked the powers that be could it be handled, soon, they complied and there went my wonderful, living and breeding fungus. I was truly, truly happy to see it go!
