Weekend Writing Prompt #295- Mistaken Identity

Mistaken Identity

Helen began her evenings, since she started her first week as a kindergarten teacher, with a glass of wine.
Her degree hadn’t prepared her for constant chatter and the “Why? question” hundreds of times a day!

By the next Monday, she worried why Lydia (the one student who sat quietly observing) hadn’t join the chaos. Helen became concerned about identifying a ‘learning disability’ frequently described by professors, so she decided to investigate.

“Lydia, why don’t you ask questions?”

“I didn’t want you to think of me as loquacious.”



I love a well told story. If it makes me laugh, all the better.

  1. Heaven forbid someone be different and thus labeled deficient. Well done (especially since I can relate to both teacher and student).

Tell me something good...
