Teacher Rob Line shares magical musical Dr. Seuss-like poem

Music Poem
 

We thought this might be the perfect end to the first week back at school after such a strange six months. Elementary music teacher Rob Line, who also happens to be an Irondequoit High School graduate, designed a T-shirt for his music colleagues in West Irondequoit. He delivered them over the Labor Day weekend and music teachers wore them during professional development days leading up to Thursday’s reopening. On the front they have a truly terrific and original poem written by Line in full Dr. Seuss style:

We will teach music on a cart.

We will teach music spread apart!

We’ll teach it with masks on our face.

In classrooms, homes, or ANY place!

We’ll use it to help students cope.

To time how long to wash with soap!

We’ll teach and follow protocol.

So no one spreads their aerosol!

This year our classes may feel new.

But we’ll help EVERY student through!

We will teach music to excite

ALL KIDS in

WEST IRONDEQUOIT!

 

“I made the shirts and wrote the poem as a morale builder for the music department. We’re a really tight-knit group and it’s obviously been a different and stressful start to the school year (as it has been for everyone!),” shared Line, who is teaching remotely this fall (K-8) while promising that his creative flair is running high. “This was a small thing I thought I could do to bring a smile and feeling of togetherness to my superhero colleagues.”

Smiles for all, Mr. Line. Well done!
