Jette Black and Her Seven Friends
by Joyce Fields

The classroom was empty except for Jette, her mother, and her teacher, Mr. Emery.

“Thanks for coming to see me, Mrs. Black.  I don’t understand why Jette is doing so poorly in all her classes,” Mr. Emery said sadly.

“Mr. Emery, Jette tells me and her father that every day a lot of the other kids tease her because she is so tall for her age.  Being tall runs in the family.  Her father is six feet, eight inches.  We talk with her about it, but we don’t really know what to do to help her.”

“I’m in the third grade, and I’m as tall as kids in the sixth grade.”  Jette looked at her mother, then at Mr. Emery.  “They tease me, and they don’t care about hurting my feelings.  I don’t like coming to school.”

Mr. Emery looked sternly at Jette.  “Well, Jette, you can’t let other people keep you from getting your education.  The only one who can do that is you.  You’re very smart, and you can do well in school.  I hope you’ll try harder to ignore those kids who tease you.”

“We tell her the same thing, Mr. Emery.”  Mrs. Black turned to Jette.  “Jette, will you try harder to ignore them?”

Jette looked at her mother.  “Yes, Mama.”  Then she looked at Mr. Emery.  “Yes, Mr. Emery.  I will.  I promise.”

“We’d better get going, Jette,” Mrs. Black said.  She smiled at Mr. Emery.  “Thanks for your time, Mr. Emery.  We can all look forward to Jette’s improvement.  Have a good weekend.  Jette will see you Monday.”

Jette picked up her backpack and waved to Mr. Emery.
