When I started volunteering with pre-schoolers, I didn't have a particular agenda. I like little kids, am concerned about the growing education divide in the country and wanted to do some service that would help those struggling at the bottom of the country's economic pileup.
Maybe somewhere deep down I envisioned imparting sage advice, but not too much of that since I'm too gray and white for my charges to see me as a role model.
But questions sages are asked are not necessarily the questions we are prepared to answer.
Like: "Why you tuck your shirt in your pants?"
