One year when I was teaching second grade, a new child
entered our class mid-year. His name was Daniel, and he
brought a special light to our class.
Daniel came over 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!"
