"Why Is She 'A Real Good Teacher?' "

A boy about 11 once told me he had "a real good teacher."

So I asked him what made her "a real good teacher:"

Well, you learn a lot in her class. And she's not mean or nothing. But if you mess, she gets you.
He nailed it.

Just about all the good teachers we've known have been that way, haven't they?
