Mrs. Staudt AND 1st Grade student Reese

Reese is a 1st grade student in Mrs. Milbrandt's class.  He is a new student this year at Harding Elementary, and I absolutely adore this quirky little boy!  He is so much fun and has quite a vivid imagination, as you will be able to tell by our picture we took together and his responses to the questions below!  He makes me smile and laugh every time I see him!
