That's fantastic! The school must have a lot of faith in you to let you shape a young mind! Keep it up!

Nice. Reminds me of how autie kids tend to get attached to me at Take Your Kid to Work Day, or at my last job. Was cool to be someone people look up to.

I don't really feel like the best role model, but you know, I guess I did some things that make me pretty cool in the eyes of those people.
