Your descriptions of these mischievous boys are excellent. I could see them so clearly and was so glad I wasn't the one trying to teach them.
Love the humor and excellent message in the piece.
I was going to list some sentences and phrases that I loved, but there are just way too many of them there. I also love the way you have us laughing, and then--gulp!

This may be may favorite so far.
Very well written. Loved the humorous touches and loved the message.
Enjoyable story all the way through. Most striking though, is the truth you touched on: that incidents, as the parent sending an obit, bring us to reflection, renewal and sometimes, action. Well said.
Oh, this was good. I loved the switch in voice from the childhood memory to the present. It worked well. Great job!
Great story. Having taught a lot of savages myself, both at home and on the mission field, I loved this line especially: "She didn't need to head off to preach to the heathen. There were more than enough savages right here." Good work.
Great descriptive language, Karen. I truly enjoyed this piece. You're certainly on the fast track "up," my friend.
