And now, some poetry from an English teacher at Garner Magnet High

Posted by Dan Barkin on April 30, 2014 

This was in the comments section at the bottom of an N&O op-ed column written by a Chapel Hill teacher.

Patrick Reilly, an English teacher at Wake County’s Garner Magnet High School wrote:

“There once was a teacher from Wake

Who knew that she'd made a mistake.

When she noticed the pay

She'd make one state away,

Well, there once was a teacher from Wake.”

Mr. Reilly is a gifted poet and a teacher with a sense of humor, which is helpful if you are a teacher.
