Change is hard. Can it also be good?

Stella loves everything about being in Ms. Carter’s class. When she learns Ms. Carter is leaving, Stella worries that a new teacher won’t know how things work. She takes her concerns straight to the top, with a letter to the principal. And Stella warns him that if her demands aren’t met, she’s going to have to quit grade one.

A heartwarming story about the incredible bond children have with their teachers.
