Kid’s going Places

The assignment is

“who is more valuable

than a pot of gold”?

So, I say to Kaleb asking

me (in first grade) how to

do it:

“So, who’s more valuable

to you, I propose… your

language teacher, your

brother, your sister, your

mom, your dad, your soccer

coach, your movement

teacher, your friend…?”

I go on and on, and I can

see by the perplexed

look on his face, I’m not

striking a vein.

Then he looks up

and blurts out, “My

sustitute techer!”

I smile and

send him back to

his seat to write

it out.
