I've been reading Harry Potter fanfiction where Hermione waves her hand in the air in her eagerness to answer questions, and it reminded me of a parent-teacher interview I had with my middle son's teacher in 6th grade.

"He wants to answer all the questions," said Mr D. "I had to explain to him that I know he knows the answer, but that everyone else in the class needs a chance to show what they can do so that I can teach them too."

Apparently my son considered this reasonable but then he went away and came back with a chart of hand-signals so that Mr D would know if he 'knew the answer', 'knew the answer but had something interesting to add', 'was not signalling about the answer but had something different to say' etc. There were about 10 signals.

I started to laugh. Then Mr D said plaintively, "I suppose I should feel honoured that he thinks I'm smart enough to learn all the signals..." and I just lost it. I laughed until the tears came to my eyes.

I love that boy and Mr D. was the best!
