Teddy and Mrs. Thompson

Her name was Mrs. Thompson. Standing in front of his class on the first day of the fifth year of school, he told a lie to children. Like most teachers, she looked the students and told them to love them all the same way. However, what he had just said was not possible, because in the first row, all factored into the bench, sat a little boy named Teddy Stoddard. Mrs. Thompson had watched Teddy the year before and noticed that he did not get along with other children, that his clothes were messy, dirty, and he constantly needed a bath.

In addition, Teddy was lazy and undisciplined. His behavior was so exasperating that sometimes Mrs. Thompson was tempted to punish the child with poor grades.

In that school was expected that teachers should review each student cards from previous years. Mrs. Thompson put off the day reading to Teddy. When she finally opened the file, she was surprised.

The first-year teacher Teddy wrote, "Teddy is a bright child with a ready laugh. Work neatly and has good manners ... it's a pleasure to be with him."

The second grade teacher, "Teddy is an excellent student, well liked by his classmates, but is troubled because his mother has a terminal illness and life at home must be a living hell."

The teacher of the third year: "The mother's death was a blow to him. He tries to do his best, but his father does not show much interest and family life adversely on him if you do not take action."

The fourth grade teacher, "Teddy is withdrawn and does not show much interest in school. Does not have many friends and sometimes sleeps in class."

Since that time, Mrs. Thompson realized the problem and she was ashamed. She felt even worse when students brought her Christmas presents, wrapped in beautiful ribbons and all glossy papers, except the Teddy. The present was clumsily wrapped in heavy brown paper that he had obtained from a bag of groceries.

Mrs. Thompson was painful to open it in the middle of the other presents. Some of the children started to laugh when the teacher found a bracelet with crystal stones missing and a bottle of perfume for only one quarter. The children stopped laughing when she exclaimed how pretty the bracelet, put it on and tapped a little 'perfume on her wrist. Teddy Stoddard that day was a little 'extra time after school hours just to say "Mrs. Thompson, today you have the scent that brought Mom."

When the children were gone, Mrs. Thompson was left alone to cry for at least an hour. From that day she stopped teaching how to read, how to write and do arithmetic only to children. Mrs. Thompson paid particular attention to Teddy. When working with him, the child's mind seemed to revive. More she encouraged him, the more he was ready answers. At the end of the year, Teddy had become one of the most brilliant children of the class, and although Mrs. Thompson had said at the beginning of the year to love all his students equally, Teddy became one of her "favorite."

A year later, Mrs. Thompson found a note under the door from Teddy, who said she was the best teacher that the boy had ever had in his entire life. Spent six years before he received another message from Teddy. He said that he had finished high school, which was the third of the class and she was still considered the best teacher.

Four years later, Mrs. Thompson received another letter from the boy, in which he told her that while things had been tough at times, he continued to study, I had devoted himself body and soul and would soon graduate from college with praise. In addition, he assured Mrs. Thompson that she was still the best teacher of all life ...

It was another four years and another letter came. This time, Teddy explained that after he graduated, he decided to continue his studies again. The letter reiterated that Mrs. Thompson still considered the best teacher. Now his name was a little 'longer, the letter was signed, Theodore F. Stoddard, doctor.

The story does not end here. There was yet another letter that spring. Teddy told that he had met a girl and that she intended to marry. He explained that his father had died a couple of years ago and was wondering if Mrs. Thompson had agreed to sit at the wedding in the place usually reserved for the mother of the groom.

Of course, Mrs. Thompson agreed. In addition, guess what he did?
He put on the bracelet, the one with the missing stones. In addition, he took care to wear the perfume that Teddy's mother had used the last Christmas they spent together, as recalled by Teddy.

They hugged each other, and Dr. Stoddard whispered in Mrs. Thompson's ear, "Thank you, Mrs. Thompson, for believing in me. Thank you so much for making me feel important and showing me that I could make a difference. "Mrs. Thompson, with tears in her eyes, whispered back,"

Teddy, you're wrong. You're the one who taught me that I could make a difference. I did not teach until I met you."
