I did some election stuff. It was nice to have a conversation about how important it is to participate in such an important thing. 
But half of my kiddos are ESOL and, well, I’m sure a few have parents with questionable status. And often I don’t think of that, I think of how much English they are getting at home and how I can support their learning the best. They love that I try and learn new words in Spanish. Or maybe they are laughing at me. No worries. I’m used to it. 
So when we had a conversation about what they would do if they were president… well this little one nearly brought me to tears. He is a precocious boy and often won’t work if he doesn’t like the assignment. But he is very smart and, as you can see very insightful. I gave him the word immigration, but he explained it perfectly. 
“Fix immigration so my grandpa can come back. Be nice.”
