Grades and Effort

If I could teach but never give out grades
If I could coach but never have to measure
If I could just assign, but not evaluate,
Teaching would become a simple pleasure.

Never would I calculate, recalculate,
Torment myself: B- or B?
Worry for a student's GPA
Wouldn't tempt me: change the D to C . . .

But there is no teaching without grades
Knowing where they stand makes students learn
Those who lack the effort lack reward
Those who put the effort in will earn

Sometimes, the most important thing I do
Is to post that horrid little "F"--
Funny what a difference it can make,
Like a shout to students who've been deaf.

Sometimes those I've failed return, and try,
And sweat, and think, and push, and learn, and see,
And then the effort gains the satisfaction
Of earned reward, not just for them, but me.
