High School Teacher
In the novel "Frindle" Nick Allen is a bright and clever 5th grader. He is known in his class for having the ability to try and sway the teacher from her lesson plans by asking questions that will develop into discussions. He uses his wit and creativity to challenge the system, however, he is polite. He likes the challenge but he does not like to be disrespectful. When he creates the word, "frindle" he is doing it as a joke. He just wants to see how far it will go to being disruptive, but he is not trying to "hurt anyone." His behavior is that of a polite, yet, adventurous young man. This ability eventually makes him a rich adult.
