maya angelou

I forgot something important about yesterday. When the second fire alarm went off a student of mine from another class, J, a girl who loves poetry, came into my room and got the book of Maya Angelou's poems from my cabinet. She said she didn't want it to burn.

Have you considered giving the student the copy of the book she rescued from your classroom as a gift?
