powerful fiction

Have you ever heard the story of Teddy and his 5th grade teacher, Mrs. Thompson?

Teddy's a mess and Mrs. Thompson is tough on him-- until she learns about his background. From there, her approach to her career, her life, and his life are all changed dramatically. It's a great story!

To be clear, it is just a story-- written by Elizabeth Silance Ballard-- albeit a powerful one. But it's often conveyed by the internet as if it were Truth. Although I'm sure it could be based on true stories, the actual events are fictional-- yet still quite powerful.
