Slice of Life 19
At our school, like many others out there, teachers provide student supervision during the lunch hour. This week, I have duty on the Panther Pit. Yes, the Panther Pit, the most dreaded of all duty assignments. When gifted the Pit, teachers are banished to the most remote corner of campus. Mosquitos and monkeys frequent this small sliver of the ISKL universe. In the past, I have rarely encountered a human child while on duty in the Pit. This week, to my surprise, I have discovered that the Sixers have commandeered this foreign land as their own! The Pit is now a flurry of activity: basketball, soccer, tag. Children running, laughing, shouting. I must say, while I have never looked forward to my time on the Pit before, this week, I am enjoying having some company with the mosquitos!
