This is a story about a boy who does not do very well in school. He has a difficult time paying attention and feels like he cannot understand the material. He has a teacher who knows absolutely everything. She is a wonderful teacher who teaches them a lot. One day, she tries to draw a face on the board, but is not able to. The boy decides to help her out, even though he does not know how either. He discovers that he is very good at it and teaches her and the class how to do it.

I love this story because it teaches that everyone is great at something. I would use it to help reach the students in my class who might not be very good at the typical "school activities." Hopefully they would begin to see their value in the classroom. I would then try to get students to name a few of their strengths for me so that I might be able to incorporate some activities in the classroom that play to those strengths.
