True Friends

They say you can always tell your true friends by what they say and their honesty.

In that case, my quirky one (one of my students) is a true friend. As I was reading The Tale of Despereaux to my class, he chimes in with, "You've got something in your teeth." He motioned to his mouth.

I scraped my teeth and grinned.

"Nope. There's still some there."

I scraped again and grinned.

"Yep, all good now."

The para that works in my room that had been listening to the book hadn't even noticed.

Thinking back, I wondered how long it had been in my teeth and why no one had said anything before. I guess I know who my true friends are!

I love this story as it reminds us that our students always have our best interest at heart! I remember the day my students walked into my classroom after I cut my hair really short. One of my boys stroked my hair and said "Why oh why did you cut off the curls?"! He was crushed!

What a sign of caring from a student. Your writing reminds me I need to start collecting the kid comments I hear, they are so funny.
