Radio Poets 2016: Vanessa DeLeon



Gerry Gomez

Vanessa DeLeon, Marshall Elementary School


Every morning when I wake up I look outside my window and take a deep breath, I get dressed, I make my coffee and walk with my sister to work.

When I get to my work I see many empty seats. In the morning I lose some of my patience while during class, but in the afternoon my head is on fire, because these kids don’t understand the meaning of quiet. They make lots of noises but some kids make my day. They do behave, but soon they will go to Middle School but I wish they remember me by their teacher Jerry Gomez.
