|Absolutely, Katzy. It was one of those teachers (in the true sense of the word) that motivated our eldest in primary school and allowed him to excel.
(His IQ is, his words, "over 150".)
I just trust that my daughters eldest (4) meets such a teacher early in the piece or he will become quite a problem (IQ? I suspect well over the 150

|My son Tim was a "different" kid.
One day, he wore a bulging-bloodshot-eyes novelty to class--I think he was in fourth grade at the time. He played it absolutely straight--wearing the
eyes without any difference in his behavior.
Another time, when the children were taking turns reading aloud from their books, another student had read something, and it was Tim's turn, next.
He said, "That's not what it says in MY book . . ." after which he pretended to read a story which he was actually inventing as he went along, in
which he included another child in the class as one of the story characters. His acting was so serious, as if he had a different story in front of
him that somehow told events in the life of the classmate, and the other children were looking at each other, wondering--what is going on?
The teacher said Tim was a delight, and she never knew what to expect from him.
This was in public school. He had been in Christian school the year before, but had been told he was not welcome to come back for the next school
year. He was considered disruptive because of his ADHD behavior, and they were not willing to "take a chance" that he would do better after he was
diagnosed and started to get ritalin.

|I was that very child, way back.
I eventually had a teacher that understood and he got my through my exams, with flying colours.
As with railways, who have people that drive trains and train drivers, there're those who teach and there're those who are teachers.

|Actually I like the "different" kids. I had a problem yesterday as one of the boys has been an absolute horror to other teachers who work for me
this week but is good with me. We had a chat away with everyone else about why this would be and he said "Mr so and so.... and Mr so and so... but
you're solid Miss. You just "get it. You just get me". I was kind of taken aback. My next step is to make him feel as welcome with all the other
teachers so he complies.
