“The Day My Classroom Lost Its Color”

My name is Bailey Bowers.
I am a first-grade teacher at Welcome Elementary in Lexington, NC.

I wanted to reach out with a piece I have written in response to the school closures due to COVID19.

Listen now…

Over the past few weeks, I found myself thinking often about my students – and missing them every day. I took a black and white photo of my classroom on one of my last days working in school and it hit me – this is what it feels like! It feels like my classroom has lost its colors without my kids being here. After taking that picture, I wrote a poem incorporating the characteristics of my students and how I expectantly await their return in May.
