Teacher by Darlene Brebber

Our school librarian was on a personal leave. His leave kept him away from school for a fairly long time. We were chatting in the hallway. I let him know he was missed and we were happy to have him back at school. This teacher is very well liked and has a great repore with staff and students. While we were talking this little boy comes up to the librarian (who by the way is a big man and towers over young children) and looks him over with a very concerned look on his face. This little person was very happy to see the librarian. The two of them talked for a brief minute. Very sincerely and concerned the little boy looks up and says “I thought you were dead.”
