Hello….It’s Me (Your Student)

Who doesn’t love Adele’s song Hello ? I decided to tweak the lyrics from the perspective of a student…in today’s highly test-heavy environment. So….here is “Hello…It’s Me (Your Student)” by Daisy Dyer Duerr. I promise not to add any audio…although it does sound good with the music…just not with my voice!!

HELLO….It’s ME (Your Student)

Hello, it’s me, I was wondering
If after all these SCHOOL years you’d like to speak…to go over; something
They say in time I’m supposed to be learning,

But I’m NOT doing much learning FOR ME.

Hello, can you hear me?
I’m in Core Classes dreaming about who I want to be
When I was younger I felt FREE
I’ve forgotten how it felt when CONTENT didn’t come before ME

There’s such a difference between NOW….
And what I want my Education to Be

Hello from the Students’ Side
I want to yell a thousand times
To tell you I’m sorry but what you’re doing’s not right
Then I start & I merely keep it inside.

Hello from the Students’ Side
I really really want to try…
To tell you I need you more than you know…
It matters so much if you do more than just merely “SHOW”

Hello, how are you?

I know you have a hard job; I look up to you so

I hope, that you love teaching me.

Education can change a town-why don’t you turn this community turnaround?

It’s no secret……

Our students ……are- running -out -of -time

So hello from Students’ Side

We’ll keep calling a thousand times

To tell you we need you to educate us

Even if when we call & you never seem to be home

Hello from the Students’ Side

Saying we’ve tried is not enough this time

We’re not sorry for asking for what we need

We know this matters, and educators won’t let us down.

Ooh, anymore
Ooh, anymore
Ooh, anymore

Anymore…

Hello from the Students’ side
I’m glad we called a thousand times
To tell you we need you to help us improve our lives
We know you will answer our calls

Hello from the Students’ side
I’m glad we called a thousand times
To tell you we need you to help us improve our lives
We know you will answer our calls
