Is there anything better than when a student stops you in the hallway with a question?
“Mr. Halpern, can I ask you a question?” A first-grade boy summoned.
“Of course, you can Simon,” I said as I stopped in my tracks.
“Do you know the movie Grease?”
“Yes, I know the movie.”
“I love that movie, do you?”
“Yes, it’s a good one.”
And then, I kid you not, this little mop-topped boy, sang, in full voice:
Grease is the word
Grease is the word, is the word that you heard
It’s got groove, it’s got meaning…
And then I joined him singing.
