One of my students had her head down (a big no-no in my school) when Hula stopped by to pay us a visit.
As soon as he left, she came and asked me for a nurse pass. I asked if she was feeling okay. (I had already asked her to pick her head up before he walked in the room.)
"Ms", she said. "I have a headache but I really don't need to go to the nurse. I just don't want you to get in trouble because my head was down."
She really did not want to miss the class. I told her not to worry about me. I told her I'm too old to worry about things like getting in trouble because her head was down.
And, that has to be one of the sweetest things I have heard in a long time.
