I had a special needs student with minor physical defects. Other students would not engage with him. Except this one boy - not the greatest student, as he would not complete his assignments, but did not make trouble. One day, this special boys just said out of the blue to no one in particular that he was hungry. The other boy, the only one who would engage with this special boy, gave him his bag of chips. He could've opened the bag and offer the other boy some, but he gave him the whole bag. I was stunned by this compassion.
