Play On

Romario passed me a note. Scrawled on a scrap-half on an index card, the note read, "Wake Me Up" by Avicci. I looked at him and before I could ask, he said,

"It's a song. I think you'll really like it."

Class ended. Students packed up, lingered and left in the rush of three minutes until the next bell.

I picked up left overs, straightened out books on tables, pushed in chairs and opened iTunes. I typed "Wake Me Up" in the search box, found the song and let it play--loudly through the classroom speakers. It had just the right amount of jingle jangle.

Romario was right. I loved it.

  1. How special that your student knew just the right song for you. And now, you have one more item on your play list. :)
