For Change’s Quake

this day, three years back:
 an unfair observation
 on a testing day.
 
 i thought i was done;
 trying to be good enough
 was just not enough
 
 and now? full circle–
 a grapevine request to see
 my expert teaching
 
 from a district head
 who saw just minutes of us
 (speaking for us all).
 
 now he’s bringing guests
 to show others how it looks
 to teach ELD
 
 (the irony stings
 with my facebook memory–
 a harsh reminder)
 
 but all things must change
 from weak saplings to gold leaves
 that have brought me home
