One of my students received a visit from CPS today. He asked me to sit with him while he was interviewed by the social worker. At the end of the day, out of nowhere, he hugged me. This is a kid who has been cussing, fighting, and arguing with adults. When other kids are not around, he's a sweetheart. When kids are acting out, there is always a reason! They need for us to protect them and believe in them.
