I enjoyed this story--especially its message.

It began to draw me in when Joe was introduced, the clumsy but endearing student in contrast to the more conventionally brilliant Rosario. Would have liked the story to have begun with Joe and Rosario and their contrasting natures aleady present.

I loved reading about both Joe's character and the sensitive way his teacher handled the situation!

Most of my students are "Joes", so I loved this.
I fell for Joe - any teacher that can teach a Joe and have them learn is a teacher I want my children to learn from. Thanks for sharing this story. It's one of my fav's this week.

Bravo for a beginning that really sucked me in and then a story that kept me engaged to the end. Yeggy
