If I had a bubble 

I’d roll myself inside 

Then I wouldn’t wonder 

How I have to hide 

From the creepy creatures 

Like spiders or centipedes 

The bubble will have saved me 

No connection can succeed.

I am terribly afraid of spiders. I have tried to desensitize myself. When I was student teaching the teacher I was working under had me do a whole spider lesson with the kids to get me past the fear. I have had to get help for nightmares, when they are bad I cannot sleep. Some people think it is funny and enjoy either showing me spider pictures or fake spiders, but it really isn’t funny. When I was teaching my own class and the kids would find out how I feel, I would teach them about sensitivity and empathy using myself as the example. When my kids were little, I tried to never show them my fear. My daughter, however, is terrified! I have had to go to her apartment to get a spider when she has been alone with no one to help her.

  1. I think your fear is real, they are not my favourite thing to encounter. Years ago a mate of mine started teaching and discovered a large huntsman spider in his classroom. Determined to show the students how tough he was he grabbed it and took it outside. It was only when outside and away from the class that he let out a scream as the spider had bitten him.

      1. I’ve taught all the grades. I love the little ones but I did like the interaction with the older more independent kids. I am still in touch with two of my students. Two that I always believed in, that I thought got treated poorly, made to feel like they were never smart enough to learn. Now they are doing good! Seniors this year!
