Days before the National Achievement Test, we conducted a Pre-NAT exam. One of my students forgot to bring a pencil. She asked to go out to borrow from her cousin, but brought nothing when she came back. Sitting on her chair, tears started falling from her eyes. I was so touched that I asked another student to hand me her pencil. By her permission, I broke the pencil into halves and gave the other half to the one without a pencil and the other half to the owner. She took the test.
