And then he hugged me

Tuesday, September 13

Tony. Oh, Tony. Smallish boy of sixth grade. Brand new to our school. Very little to no English—yet.

On his way out of afternoon homeroom yesterday, he suddenly walked over and gave me a quick half-hug.

First and only student to do that this school year. It was incredibly endearing.

All my best, Tony, for a great year.
