Tigana spent several evenings writing her report, which she read out to Mary's class:
Why Kids Are More Important Than Work
by Tigana Runté
- When your kids are sick, stay home and help them feel better.
- When someone is mean to your kids, help them learn what to say and stand up for themselves.
- We would rather have you spend time with us than have lots of money for toys.
This report was well recieved by Mary's two classes; Mary and I were extremely proud of how Tigana was able to overcome her nervousness and read out her report to a room full of adult strangers. I'd have to say that her presentation was as clear and coherent as about half of those by my student teachers.
