The Slice of Life Story Challenge
is hosted by the Two Writing Teachers.
Her story. Her story will remind me. She's a sweet, sweet girl. Quiet, but works hard. Works hard, but struggles. Struggles, but wants so much to please. Her classroom teacher and the data both spoke with concern for this child. So many questions erupted about her story.
Then I learned there was more to her story.
Something happened. We had a visit from a certain department of children and family services. My mind speculated, wondered, and questioned. My heart ached after hearing there is more to her story.
That night and every night since, she's been in my prayers. Her story reminds me that I don't know what happened last month, last night, or even this morning. Her story reminds me to be more patient, to be more forgiving, just to be more for my students. Her story will remind me. Her story.
