It’s been almost a month now since a new student has been coming to our school. I think it’s high time for an introduction.

Enter Eduardo. Twelve years old. Never been to school.


Eduardo is a calm guy. Always a ready smile. He is the artistic type. Learning to write, to shape the numbers and letters. Very neatly. Learning sign language at a rapid pace.

It’s been a good challenge having him in my classroom. Takes a bit of planning to keep all the students busy and learning. But seeing them understand. The light in their eyes. It’s rewarding.
