Anne’s Present

The powers of enlightenment won out yesterday and drew Anne back into school. “Against our will, Papa, against our will.” Her resistance wasn’t entirely futile though. She held out for two-hours and got to sleep in, before a personal, non-robotic appeal eventually succeeded. She ended up subbing for the ESOL teacher. Now ESOL doesn’t stand for Educator S— Out of Luck, but rather English as a Second or Other Language. It use to be called English as a Second Language, but many of these children already speak two or more languages, just not English. On this day, Anne taught kids from Syria, Cambodia, Russia, Brazil and various Hispanic countries. As a reward, she was gifted by one of her students with the pictured drawing.
