I enjoyed this tale of two boys. This line was a chuckler:
“Josiah, did you ever think that maybe teachers are just like real people?” Great piece!

Cute! Your title caught my eye and I had to read it. I liked the line with 'teachers being real people' and especially how the teachers were able to keep them interested and participating in class. I lovted the bit with throwing out a ball of paper to see if it would get past Josiah. That made it even more real. The contrast at the end was even better. Good job! ^_^

Enjoyed the story, especially how the teachers found something that interested the boys which help with their learning.(The sign of a good teacher). There were a few unnecessary dashes and commas but overall a good job.

Nicely written! I also laughed at the "teachers are real people" line. Too funny and such a real "kid thought." :-)
I enjoyed your story. Great job!

Count me in as liking the "teachers are real people" line. Great characters. This would make a good chapter book for kids.
Great story. Very well written and right on topic. What wonderful teachers they had. You made the boys real to me. Very nicely done.
