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

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.
