By Your Plan
2.41 Stand by Your Man song parody for teachers. Sung by Kym Rickman.
Sometimes it's hard to be a teacher . . . spending
lonely nights with lesson plans.
You teach glad kids, you teach the sad kids . . . and you find a way a way
to hold each hand.
But State assessments drive instruction . . . they say that kids are just
They say there's one size, but you know that's all lies.
And so you close your classroom door.
Stand by your plan
And show the kids you know them.
And you will walk beside them
Each year they're in your classroom
Stand by your plan
And show the world that teachers
Do more than tests or textbooks can.
Stand by your plan.
