Quiet kids can be an enigma. We don't know what they're thinking.
Are they brilliant? Are they crazy? Are they both? And when we're sitting in class with them in high school, we are usually thinking, what happens after? Where are they going with their life?
These are the chronicles of the quiet kids.
It's so sad to see people throw their lives away.
Especially as a teacher, where are you working hard to make sure your students do have a bright future, watching your own students care less about themselves than you care about them is painful.
And recounting those stories must bring up painful memories.
