A Touching Moment

Standard

I had moved my glazed clay boxes out of the kiln room into the classroom during 7th period today.  I noticed a boy that for the most part was just meh about art class, except for the week that we worked with clay, checking them out.  Earlier this year I told him that he should take ceramics next year because I had never seen him so into class like he was while working with clay–he was like a completely different student–he had completely come alive.  I thought he had forgotten or changed his mind when it came to sign up for classes as I never not talked with him about it since.  I quietly asked him today if he had signed up for the class.  He said Yes.  My heart jumped inside.  He is one of those kids that school doesn’t really mean anything to him and I am sure he will just get by and get out.  So, if I can get him hooked and interested in something.  I just know that he will love it.  I just know it..  I thought he had forgotten when it came to sign up for classes as I never not talked with him about it since.  I quietly asked him today if he had signed up for the class.  He said Yes.  My heart jumped inside.  He is one of those kids that school doesn’t really mean anything to him and I am sure he will just get by and get out.  So, if I can get him hooked and interested in something.  I just know that he will love it.  I just know it.
