what I like to do is to share a little story with you a very tender story it was sent to me to me by someone who sent me beautiful things in the mail and I call it the teddy story and I like to read this for to you if I can do it without tearing up and this story illustrates this as well as any thing I have ever seen this story many years ago of elementary school teacher her name was Mrs. Tomson as student of one of her fifth grade class on the very first day of school she told the children a lie like most teachers she looked at her studentss and said that she loved them all the same but that was impossible because there in the front line slumped in his seat was a little boy named Teddy Sadet Mrs. Tomson had watched Teddy the year before and noticed that he didn't play well with the other children and his clothe were messy and he consistently needed a bath Teddy could be unpleasant he got to the point where Mrs. Tomson would actually take the light and marking his papers with a broad red pen and making bold Xs and then putting a big F at the top of his paper at the school where Mrs. Tomson taught she was required to review each child past records and she put Teddy's off until last however, when she reviewed his file she was in for a surprise Teddy's first grade teacher wrote Teddy is a bright child with a very last he dose his work neatly and he has good manners he is a joy to be around his second grade teacher wrote Teddy is an excellent student well liked by his classmates but he is in trouble because his mother has a terminal illness and life at home must be a struggle his third grade teacher wrote his mother's death has been hard on him he tries to do his best but his father doesn't show much interest in his home life was soon affecting this steps aren't taken Teddy's fourth grade teacher wrote Teddy's withdrawn and doesn't show up much interest in school he doesn't have many friends and some times he even sleeps in class by now Mrs. Tomson realized the problem and she was ashamed of herself she felt even worse when her students brought her Christmas presents wrapped in beautiful ribbons and bright papers except for Teddy's his present was clumsily wrapped in its heavy brown paper he has got from grocery bags Mrs. Thomson took pains to open it in the middle of the other presents
