Maureen, those kids are so funny. It's an early reading program with inner-city pre-K kids. I need to take a tape recorder and get all of it. All I have to do is ask a question about the book and they are off and running with their hilarious comments.

Asking questions and letting the kids come up with their own theories rather than just feeding them the info is the hallmark of a great teacher. Want a job?
