one year when i was teaching second grade, a new child entered our class mid-year. his name is daniel, and he brought a special light to our class.
daniel came to me one afternoon at the end of the school day. he said, “ms. johnson , i have a note for you from my old teacher. it’s not on paper though, it’s in my head.” daniel leaned over and said , “she wanted me to tell you how lucky you are to have me in your class!”
