That's what we're instructed to call him when he gets out his chair, posters and pointer. Sam's been very interested in the solar system for a while, particularly the order of the planets, their colors and whether they are hot or cold. Having taught third grade for so long I have quite a few little nuggets of interesting information about the solar system and he soaks it up like a sponge. Every once in a while I'll tell him something about space that's a little surprising and he'll argue with me, but that's just for the sake of arguing, which he likes to do even more than learn about space. We drew a picture of the solar system the other day and as soon as we were finished he decided Evelyn needed to learn all about the planets, too. Out the pointer came, along with a couple of chairs, and a classroom was built. She wasn't a bad student, but she certainly wasn't
in the lecture. Teacher Sam doesn't mind. As long as he has the floor, he's happy.
