Parent-teacher nights are something all parents are familiar with. Though process varies from school to school, families can expect to learn about what their children have been up to, see some of their work, and talk with teachers. What one father didn’t expect was to see something that broke his heart.
When Bob Cornelius went to parent-teacher night for his son, Christopher, who was in sixth grade and on the spectrum, he was able to see some of his son’s schoolwork hanging on the wall, and he snapped a picture of it.
But it wasn’t until he got home that he fully read what it said, and he was floored by it.
It was a simple questionnaire with fill-in-the-blank prompts to answer “Fascinating Facts” about yourself, like your favorite things, your family, and the future.
