Abstract

On the fi rst day of school, when all of the students were lining up and packing up their backpacks to go home, Kenny remained at his desk. When his teacher approached him and asked him again to line up, he whispered to her, “Ummm… I think there has been a mistake. I have never been in a classroom like this… I am afraid if I go home, that I won’t be able to come back here again.” She smiled, and whispered back, “You are going to be in this classroom all year. We are excited to have you. We are going to learn together all year.” Kenny hesitantly put on his backpack and went home.
