Duo/Duet- The Shot That Killed Silence

  • (Scene opens with a teacher standing in front of her classroom. She looks out at the empty chairs and smiles with anticipation. She then turns and writes on the board, she finishes and turns to the audience. Her joy has seemingly left her.) Teacher: Everyone has a calling. Some are called to be ministers, some actors, other politicians; I was called to be an elementary school teacher. I don’t even know that it can truly be explained but when I stand in front of a new class of eager faces I know, this is exactly where I am supposed to be. Educating children, and changing lives. There is honestly nothing better. Child 1: Teacher where do I sit? (She smiles, points to a seat) Thanks! (Teacher continues) Teacher: (To audience) When I decided to become an elementary school teacher my father thought I as crazy. (Laughs) He said that I didn’t have the patience to grow flowers why would I think I would have the patience to teach children? Child 1: (Raising her hand) Teacher! Teacher! Why do we call it a lightening bug when it can’t electro...cute us? (The child struggles with the word) Teacher: Electrocute. Child 1: Yeah, what you said. My big brother said that’s stupid. Teacher: Is he smart? Child 1: (Thinks) Umm no. Good point. You’re so smart. Teacher: (Laughing, to audience) I may not have the patience for flowers, but these beautiful roses… I have all the time in the world for them. (She reflects back on what she has written on the board.)
