Miss Caroline's Diary (Chapter 3)

Today I was walking past one of my students (Burris Ewell) and I noticed he had cooties! I didn't even know what one was until a kind boy named 'Little Chuck Little' explained that it was a cootie. He kindly got me a glass of water and once I had recovered I sent Burris Ewell home and gave him a remedy to get rid of his cooties - I didn't want to other children, or even myself to catch them! Oh well, I suppose that you learn something new every day. That's what I tell my students. I'm not that surprised he got cooties though - he is quite dirty. But, that's not all that shocked me about this boy though. I found out that he and his whole family only came to school on the first day, and then never came again for the rest of the year.

Burris Ewell was extremely rude to me and unfortunately I started to cry in front of my class but they were very kind to me. They comforted me and then asked me to read them a story. I'm glad that they enjoy my stories - I do have fun reading to them. I really like my pupils and I'm glad to have them as I really do love teaching. Today was very eventful and I could write so much more but someone's knocking on my door. That's all for now.............
