We frown at gum chewing at our elementary school for obvious reasons, but no one frowns more upon it than the music teacher.
Today, a 4th grader who had been caught chewing gum was admitting that he got it from a classmate. The moment the music teacher asked him to tell us who gave it to him, Azana raised her hand to take responsibility.
I was amazed! Two years ago, she would have denied it and yelled and screamed at the other students. Two years ago, she would have cried and had a fit. Today, she got up, walked to the trashcan and tossed her gum. Sometimes they grow up right before your eyes.
