Today’s sentence: “Can I have a word with you?”
Can I have a word with you, sarah? The teacher said very matter of factly. But sarah knew it was trouble, she was going to be in serious trouble.
She had that feeling, the feeling of dread, as she walked to her teachers desk.
Yes? Miss? She tentatively said?
Sit down, sarah…her teacher said.
Sarah sat down heavily and waited, she waited, and waited some more.
Finally her teacher opened her desk drawer and took out a framed photo.
Here you go sara…this is for you.
I wanted to give you this photo to remember your class. Sarah burst into tears. Tears of relief.
She’d almost forgotten that she was leaving this school and her class behind, to move to america.
Have safe travels Sarah, and remember what I taught you about america! There will be a lot to learn once you move!
I will, miss, sarah beamed! And thank you, thank you for being the best teacher in the world!
