Daily Prompt : Proclivity

In response to one-word Prompt  :  Proclivity

I have a proclivity to watch children whom I teach,

One thing I noticed they  have their likes and dislikes.

One year I noticed a girl assigned to me hated school,

I told the principal, ‘I think I’ll have problems with her.”

He looked at me in awe,  ‘but you didn’t start teaching yet,’

‘I know,’ I said,  ‘my sixth sense alerts me she’d give me trouble.’

He advised me to see her parents, he said,  ‘they will cooperate.’

I saw the parents, talked to them, they smiled and looked at each other.

This is what they said, ‘We are surprised, because it’s true,

she really hates school!’
