At first glance, Ronny looked like every other kid in the first grade classroom where Marie volunteered as a teacher.
On a closer inspection; though Ronny was a student of first grade, he didn’t know much up to his level. He therefore was not asked for. He couldn’t read a line from the books properly. Marie saw the loneliness faced by Ronny, she wanted to help him. B...ut couldn’t as she had no enough time. Her experience as a volunteer teacher was coming to an end. The next day was her last day in the school. That night she thought of giving different awards to the students. She awarded students according to their capabilities and as she went accordingly she didn’t know what should be given to Ronny. Finally as an encouragement she awarded Ronny with “The Most Improved Reader”. Later next day she started handing away the awards, when Ronny was called his face lit up with excitement his eyes sparkled with happiness. Very gracefully and with pride he went to stand beside Marie to get his first award; his certificate and his first gifted book.
