(by NativeRose, added on 7 May 2004 03:27 PM)

Tamara stood, silently looking at Zachary. What was she to do? She looked up as Summer, Anela's other aide, walked into the classroom.
"Tamara?" she heard Anela's voice behid her.
"You may return to the classroom and help Summer give the students their first assignment."
Anela knelt down to talk to Zachary on his level. She spoke gently to him, and gave him a hug. Tamara marveled at the way she interacted with him.

When he started drawing on his own, she circulated among the other students to see where they needed assistance.
