The Sage Award To Honor Our Own
Rules and Regs and budgets galore
Title 1 duties are these, plus more!
Additions, amendments, and LEA bosses
Make directors think they live in a zoo.
Deciphering memos with mysterious clauses
Can cause our most stalwart to sit and boo-hoo.
Along this path of profound complication
We each have found us a savior.
A Prince Charming or Godmother type
Who can relate to our behavior.
One who gets in there amidst the mess,
And helps us out when things get rough;
One who’s sweet and gentle and kind;
And actually understands this stuff.
A person who’s only a phone call away
A person who’s teetering on the brinkeroo
A person as busy and bothered as us,
Who’s still able to clearly think for two.
A proposal rises now that CACE,
The merry bank of fellow sufferers,
Should honor one who has helped out others,
A veritable Mother Theresa of Bufferers,
You can nominate whoe’er you wish.
Be, it one, or two or three.
We’ll add up to the highest number
And our winner there shall be.
Some words of praise about your candidate
Will help us explain our choice.
It will make the award more meaningful
‘cause it comes from a helped-ones voice.
So please join in to make a pick,
We’re in this to help each other.
What better way then to single out
For honor a sister or a brother.
Come Conference time in December days
At the luncheon – a hearty fare
We’ll give a toast; acknowledge our own
And honor him or her.
