At the beginning of the after-school program, one of our youngest students, Maria, did not know how to tie her shoes. She would always come running to me saying, “Miss Kerri, Miss Kerri! You help me?” I worked with her on how to tie her shoes many times following so that she could learn. This week, I had been so focused on all of our activities that I didn’t realize that one of my shoes came untied. Maria ran up to me and got on one knee. I looked down in confusion, and she smiled up at me as she tied it for me. “Miss Kerri, now I help you,” she said, and continued to tie my shoe.
