Appreciation

It was the first day of school in Nebraska, and Hermann had a good reason to be nervous. He did not remember what it felt like to go to school! That had certainly not always been true. He had been a good student when he lived in New York City, but then in 1882, his father had become ill. Hermann had to leave school to help his family. When his father finally was well enough for Hermann to return to school, his father made an announcement. The family was going to move to the Nebraska prairie to farm. This life in Nebraska was extremely hard, and Hermann and his father were busy from morning until late at night. First, they had to fix the walls of their sod house so they would not fall down, and then they had to repair the cracks in order to keep the wind out. After that, it was time to plow the fields and tend to the crops. Unfortunately, the attention and effort needed to ensure that they had food on the table left no time for Hermann to attend school. When fall arrived in 1884, Hermann’s father had made his decision. He wanted Hermann to return to school, because being a pioneer farmer was hard, and he didn’t want his son to have as difficult a life as he had. As Hermann walked the three dusty miles to school, he became more and more nervous and wondered if he would make new friends and if he would do well in school. Back in the city, there had always been someone to talk to, but there was no one here. Hermann heard only the occasional sound of whistling wind or howling coyotes.

By the time Hermann reached the one-room school, everyone had already gone inside. When he opened the door, a young woman said, “You must be Hermann. I am Miss Peal.” The teacher pointed to a seat at the far side of the classroom. The students all watched as Hermann crossed the room. Someone stifled a giggle. By the time Hermann finally sat down, he felt humiliated. “Class, please!” Miss Peal said sharply, and then she turned to Hermann. “Don’t worry, you haven’t missed anything,” she said. “I’ve just been asking students to read aloud and spell a few words so that I can give them partners.” When it was his turn, Hermann found it hard to read. He had not been in school for a long time and was out of practice. It made sense that his partner was Rosa, a girl approximately three or four years younger. It was soon time for lunch, so Hermann seated himself away from the other students and pulled out his food. Then he saw Rosa sitting alone. She looked toward Hermann. Finally, it hit him. “Are you hungry?” Hermann asked Rosa. After she nodded, he said, “I’ll share with you.”“And I’ll help you in return!” she said. She quickly began to rifle through the pages of her spelling book. Finally, she found the page she had been looking for. “Spell the word ‘appreciate’ and use it in a sentence.” Hermann carefully spelled each letter, and then he grinned. “I appreciate your help,” he said. “So do I,” Rosa said, smiling shyly. Finally, Hermann was beginning to feel a little more confident. This had not been a perfect first day, but he thought this might be a very good year.
