We are never too late to thank our teachers, and never too old to learn from children. Wide eyes stared with rapt anticipation as the teacher strolled between the rows of desks. The teacher carried a stack of construction paper in her arms, handing a single sheet of fresh clean paper to each child as she gracefully made her way around the classroom. As the paper landed on the desk in front of each child, little hands eagerly selected a preferred color of crayon and hovered over the paper, awaiting the first instruction. The children hunched over their desks, leaning forward in their seats as if they were in starting blocks and waiting for the sound of the gun to start the race.
"After you have completed your art project," started the teacher. She paused for dramatic effect, to assure that she had the complete and undivided attention of everyone in the room. "After you have completed your art project, then you can go out to the playground. You will hand in your drawings to me, and then you may walk quietly outside. You must stay in the playground until everyone has finished. Is that understood?"
