A Taylor-made Lesson Plan

Amazingly, this is more fun that rewriting the Integrated Science program.

My take on the Taylor Swift earworm ‘Shake It Off’ (long story short: haters gonna H8, teachers gonna procrastin8)

Teach Them All

I get too much pay, too much holidays,
That’s what people say, mmm hmm, that’s what people say, mmm hmmm
It must be easy, workin’ nine to three
That’s what they tell me, mmm hmm, that’s what they tell me, mmm hmm
But I keep on stressin’, planning science lessons
It’s like I got this voice in my mind saying no student left behind

‘Cause the haters gonna bitch, bitch, bitch, bitch, bitch
And the kids are gonna twitch, twitch, twitch, twitch, twitch
Baby, I’m just gonna teach, teach, teach, teach, teach,
Teach them all, teach them all
Daydreamers try to sleep, sleep, sleep, sleep, sleep
And the naughty kids will sneak, sneak, sneak, sneak, sneak
Baby, I’m just gonna teach, teach, teach, teach, teach,

Teach them all, teach them all

I take the highs and lows, it keeps me on my toes
And that’s the way it goes mmm hmm, that’s the way it goes mmm hmm
I firmly plant my feet, I won’t let these kids retreat
And that’s what no one sees mmm hmm, that’s what they don’t see mmm hmm
But I’m in their corner, always pushing forward
It’s like I got this voice in my mind saying no student left behind

‘Cause the haters gonna bitch, bitch, bitch, bitch, bitch
And the kids are gonna twitch, twitch, twitch, twitch, twitch
Baby, I’m just gonna teach, teach, teach, teach, teach,
Teach them all, teach them all
Daydreamers try to sleep, sleep, sleep, sleep, sleep
And the naughty kids will sneak, sneak, sneak, sneak, sneak
Baby, I’m just gonna teach, teach, teach, teach, teach,

Teach them all, teach them all

I teach them all, teach them all
I teach them all, teach them all
I, I teach them all, I teach them all
I, I teach them all, I teach them all
I, I teach them all, I teach them all

Hey, hey, hey
Just think while I’ve used several weekends writing well-thought out report comments that some parents won’t ever read

You could have been getting down to
this
fresh
take

Your first-born, your true pride and joy
Is a rude little boy, but I’m still gonna teach him
And your twelve-year-old niece
Rolls her eyes and says “whatever”
I’m gonna teach her too, because I know she can do better 

‘Cause the haters gonna bitch, bitch, bitch, bitch, bitch
And the kids are gonna twitch, twitch, twitch, twitch, twitch
Baby, I’m just gonna teach, teach, teach, teach, teach,

Teach them all, teach them all

Daydreamers try to sleep, sleep, sleep, sleep, sleep
And the naughty kids will sneak, sneak, sneak, sneak, sneak
Baby, I’m just gonna teach, teach, teach, teach, teach,
I teach them all, I teach them all
I teach them all, I teach them all
I, I teach them all, I teach them all
I, I teach them all, I teach them all
I, I teach them all, I teach them all
I teach them all, I teach them all
I, I teach them all, I teach them all
I, I teach them all, I teach them all
I, I teach them all, I teach them all
