An Interview Before 4th GradeMe: Are you looking forward to a new school year?
Smarty: Now I do, but I still don’t like the idea of waking up so early for school. I wish school would start at 10 am and not at 8 am.
Me: What is your favorite subject?
Smarty: Reading, duh!
Me: What are you looking forward to learning this year?
Smarty (thinking): Hmm… California history, I suppose.
Me: What would you like to learn if you could learn anything?
Me: What are the three things that your teacher should know about you?
Smarty: That I like reading, that I hate working in groups, because I have to wait for everyone, and that I like to draw with crayons, not with markers or pencils.
Me: Do you have any worries about this year?
Smarty: No. I don’t see why I wouldn’t have a good year, especially if I work hard.
Me: What is more important, intelligence or discipline?
Smarty: Intelligence… No, wait… Discipline… No, I think they are equally important.
