This is lovely. Great characterisation, and I love the subtle wit and insight in your final lines.

Just lovely, especially the last sentence.
What a wonderful message! Great story and approach to the topic.
A very well written story on lessons learned. Out of the mouths of babes.......Great job!
This was fun to read. I love the "angle".
And the kids and you just keep trying - what a wonderful reward when the breakthrough does finally come.
My mom is a 4th grade teacher and seems to always have her "red pen" out when I visit. She could really relate to this story.

I enjoyed this so very much. Will have to try to read it to Mom. :)
I enjoyed this, and can definitely relate to the teacher tendencies, red pen and all!
