This boy, M.M. has a learning disability. He gets on everybody's nerves and he gets the worst out of us. But he is also capable of getting the best out of me, and in turn I try my best to fish out the potential I know he has because I care and I want him to know his parents care and that he can do it. It may take him longer to get there, but he is taking the necessary steps. You should have seen him read aloud yesterday in front of his classmates during a field trip to the botanical gardens... A radiant smile and gleaming eyes for a precious little moment that proves that trust and effort are as nourishing if not more than food.
This is dedicated to all my fellow Flickr teachers and to Janice, who seems to be in love as much as I am with the iphone 4S :)
