ONE YEAR WITH AN ENGLISH TEACHER
Day 9, September 14, 2007
* * * * *
I can't imagine having more respectful students than those at Pine Point. In my classes, the students make me feel like an important dignitary. (Does my advanced age have something to do with that??) They are cordial, kind, and always courteous. Anyone would be extremely fortunate to spend four class periods each day with such considerate children.
* * * * *The break times during class are becoming very revealing for me. Today, while the other kids were relaxing outside, one girl sat at the table with a downcast expression. When I asked her if she was all right, I could see that she was on the edge of tears. I just nodded, and smiled, and stayed quiet.
