 Andrew is in grade 3 now, sitting in the front row, bursting with excitement when a special guest reader drops by.  Andrew knows the guest reader.  She
has read twice to him, last year and the year before.  “
 When Andrew met the reader he was in a class with no number, a smaller class with tougher teachers, teachers who take on kids coded Behavior Disorder. 
He brought to the classroom his memories of past tragedies, his uncontrollable self.  The reader loved to watch his teachers, loving Andrew, nurturing
his eccentricities, shaping him with kindness, imagining a better future than Andrew himself could plan. 
 But now Andrew is in Grade 3, bursting with excitement to say: ”I know that reader!”
