When I taught special education I had two kindergarten boys who liked to compete with each other about everything. One of the boys said “Ms. Janky, my dad drives a truck.” I asked, “What kind of truck?” He said, “A semi-truck.” I said, “Wow, that is a big truck.” The other boy said, “Well, my dad drives a rocket!”
After 23 years in working in education, this was a first for me. In the middle of evaluating a second grade student, he stopped me and asked if I could get him a cup of coffee. Ummmm, no.
