Marcy Finds Help At School
By Joyce Furstenau
  

1     Marcy had become withdrawn at school. Her teacher began to worry about her. She used to be the first one to raise her hand. Now she seemed tired all the time. Her homework was rarely done. Lately, she seemed to cry at the drop of a hat. Mrs. Jenkins, her teacher, decided to have a heart-to-heart talk with Marcy.
 
2     "Marcy, can I see you for a minute after the rest of the class leaves for recess?"
 
3     Marcy nodded her head up and down. She waited silently at her seat. She didn't seem to have much energy today, either.
 
4     Mrs. Jenkins sat down beside Marcy. She put her hand on Marcy's arm and said, "Honey, I've been worried about you lately. You don't seem to be the bubbly Marcy that you were last fall. Is there something going on at school that I need to know about?"
 
5     Marcy shook her head "no." Mrs. Jenkins could see she was on the verge of tears. "Is there something going on at home, then?" she asked.
 
6     Marcy hesitated. Then she put her head down on her arms and began to sob. Mrs. Jenkins patted her on the back. She waited until Marcy was calm enough again to talk.
 
7     "Is it something you can talk to me about, or would you like to go see Mr. Rogers?" asked Mrs. Jenkins. Mr. Rogers was the school counselor.
 
8     Marcy looked at Mrs. Jenkins with tears in her eyes. "My parents are getting a divorce," she said. Then she began to cry again.
