Editor’s note: Carolyn Kelley is a retired teacher from the Rockford School District. The following poem expresses her thoughts about the recent District 205 situation with Dr. LaVonne Sheffield.
Played us like a violin!
She’s the victim? Come again?’
Squandered money: ENI,
LaLa flop—no coverage. Why?
WEE to blame, our “racist” past.
Many lawsuits—gone at last.
Let this be a lesson learned.
Reputations must be earned.
Teachers treated just like dirt
Leave, and then the town is hurt.
Reign of terror ends. Let’s party!
Can we hire Patrick Hardy?
