And it’s contagious…

The soundtrack for 500 days of Summer is great.

This is a great song – Us by Regina Spektor.

It reminds me of being in the bath – the last time I listened to this soundtrack I was in a bath, it’s true, I’m a dork.

They made a statue of us
And it put it on a mountain top
Now tourists come and stare at us
Blow bubbles with their gum
Take photographs have fun, have fun

They’ll name a city after us
And later say it’s all our fault
Then they’ll give us a talking to
Then they’ll give us a talking to
Because they’ve got years of experience
We’re living in a den of thieves
Rummaging for answers in the pages
We’re living in a den of thieves
And it’s contagious
And it’s contagious
And it’s contagious
And it’s contagious

We wear our scarves just like a noose
But not ’cause we want eternal sleep
And though our parts are slightly used
New ones are slave labor you can keep

We’re living in a den of thieves
Rummaging for answers in the pages
We’re living in a den of thieves
And it’s contagious
And it’s contagious
And it’s contagious
And it’s contagious

They made a statue of us
They made a statue of us
The tourists come and stare at us
The sculptor’s marble sends regards
They made a statue of us
They made a statue of us
Our noses have begun to rust
We’re living in a den of thieves
Rummaging for answers in the pages
Were living in a den of thieves

And it’s contagious
And it’s contagious
And it’s contagious
And it’s contagious
And it’s contagious
And it’s contagious
And it’s contagious
And it’s contagious

Geez

I am in my 3rd week of student teaching and all I can say is….what?  I can’t really decipher all the feelings or questions and concerns swirling around in my head, but I know that they are generally negative.  I know that I am a new teacher and thus, idealistic.  I also know what “best practices” are and what “developmentally appropriate” means.  Based on my 2.5 years of masters education, I’m pretty sure that what I’m seeing now does not fit into any good category.  The only thing the kids are really learning now is how to stand in line with their hands at their sides – which they still don’t really know since we have to practice it every single time they stand in line.  The kids are constantly being yelled at for not paying attention, there are a lot of kids who don’t know numbers or the alphabet (!).  The kids are not learning at all and there is so much yelling.  Not from me.  From the main teacher.  Yikes, this is not good.
