&-A!gona (let.) Upper ttej Moittes Thursday, Sepf. t7, 1959 V F ta Y ( < ', ! M ,1* * f>' >-; SHOES ARE BACK ON THE fret of the srmill fry, the enrollment slips filleil out. the book rental fee's paid, and the courses of Mvub established. Homo- have takon on a blessed atmosphere Of quiet for several hour's during the day. Mom is enjoying an uninterrupted scvond cup of coffee, teacher is back at her desk, God's in His heaven nnd ail's right with the world. School has started. » * * IT TAKES A FEW DAYS OF A SITUATION like this for sonic of us to get used to the bonanza. It, also takes a little while for some ot u* to realize what a big debt of gratitude we parents owe the schools and the teachers. Not only do they instruct our little dai lines, they also get them out of our hair. And they solve for u^ a problem that, during the last weeks of vacation all but overwhelmed us—-the perpetual question. "Mom. what'll I do now?" * » 4 TEACHERS. I KNOW, GET SOME COMPLIMENTS—every one of which is undoubtedly deserved. They don't get. enough of them because it's only normal for all of us to make a bigger, noise while iTiliminjj than we do when handing out bouquets. Touchers also get Jots'of advice from all sorts of people including the kids, the parents, the principal and superintendent nnd the school board. On the theory that a little more advice eon'1 hurt them much, I have devised these ten commandments for teachers: * * * I—THdU SHALT SEEK OUT THE WORTHWHILE qualities in each of thy pupils. Though there he thirty, all of them squirmy, wiggly. coming down with colds or forming spit-halls behind thy .back, thou shnlt remember that genius often lurks under .unlikely surfaces. It may Vie. thy privilege to awaken a future Edison, a Claire Booth Luce, or a president of General Motors. Or thou may nt least have the satisfaction, years hence, of saying none of'thy. pupils landed in jail for more than ten year terms, * * ' * II—THOU SHALT KEEP A HAPPY FACE. Though thy new shoes are simply killing thee, though thy boy .friend and thee.have just had a big blow-up, though thy' rent is due and thy purse is empty, thou shall not take it out on the kids. Thou shall stand up before the little monsters and smile. . • * * * III—THOU SHALT HAVE THY EARS OPEN to receive the confidences of thy pupils and thy mouth closed lesl those fascinating tidbits revealed in Show and Tell Time slip out. Though the tide of how Mamma is mad at Daddy, what Papa is going to tell his boss when he gets a chance or hew Mamma thinks she might be~ expecting, would make devastating conversation at thy next tea party, thou shalt forget thou ever heard them. And,' verily, thou shnlt be blessed above all teachers by the mothers who are much concerned over what Junior tells in school. * * - * IV—THOU SHALT DEVELOP A DISCERNING EYE worthy of V physician. Thou must be able to spot rashes on tummies...ajid Dispatch students to the school nurse with speed enough to,keep the rest of the class from an epidemic of Measles. Thou must'make up thy mind if an upset tummy is feigned to get out of a spelling test and with speed enough to prevent mopping'up jobs on the classroom floor. Thou must inspect for dirty ears, varied vermin of the ..scalp, extreme fatigue from watching the late TV movie, impcntigo, and Hoof and Mouth disease. Thou must distribute Kleenex for runny noses, rubber bands for loose pony tails, sympathy for bruised shins, referee service for fights and band-aids for cut fingers. * * * V—THOU SHALT LEARN THE FINE art of double-talk for parent conferences. Though it be true that a kid is plain stupid it is not seeming to tell his mother this. Thou can always fall back on such terms as lack of reading-readiness (doesn't like Dick, "Jane or Puff), non-conformity to his peer group (bites the other kids), resentment of authority (bites thp teacher), or failure to plan his time schedule efficiently (frequently fails to make it to .the"'l5ath- room.) ' •• • '--.'; * * * VI—THOU SHALT TAKE A FIRM stand'on this matter of Homework. Verily, Homework is fraught with tribulations. Though thy assignments be meager, there shall always be the complaint from the small fry—"Our teacher is tough—too much Homework". Though thy assignments be mountainous, thy supervisor shall say, 'Assign more Homework". Though thy grades be far higher than thy pupils deserve thou shalt hear complaints from the parents, Teacher as picking on Junior. After I did all his homework, too", tvnd thee, the teacher—thou hast Homework, too. Correcting all those papers from the Homework. * , * •* VII—THOU SHALT GIVE THOUGHT TO THY RAIMENTVThou shalt dress pretty enough to appeal to thy students sense of the lovely. Thou shalt dress plain enough so that the fathers of.thy pupils do not consider thee whistle-bait and bring down the wrath of thy pupils' mothers upon thee. Thou shalt dress demurely enough so that the most conservative member of the school board -shall consider thy contract renewable next June. * * * * VIII—THOU SHALT KEEP ONE STEP AHEAD of thy pupils; Truly, in this day of television, the public library, and the encouraging of the inquiring mind, this is a problem. Thou must use up thy riches, stored during the winter to attend school in the summer Thou must get thy degree. Though thou hast all the wisdo.m of Solomon gained through ages in the classroom, .the pearl above price is yet the B. A. or the Master's degree. * * * IX—THOU MUST LEARN TO SUBORDINATE thy taste for luxuries to the size of thy paycheck. Verily, I say unto you such riches as a decent winter coat, fine carriages, braces on thy own offsprings' molars and steak every third Wednesday appear as a molehill to the mountain compared to the privilege of training young minds. If the way seems rough, consider that there are truly harder ways of making a living. But woudst thou really like selling • refrigerators to the Eskimos in Alaska? ' * . * * X--THOU MUST REALIZE THAT THOUGH thy problems be legion, the parents of thy students have perplexities' of their own. Henry Davis at the city hall ftt Buffalo Center.
