Long Beach, CA
I size up my class every year, and I have my own prejudices. My students size me up every year, and they have theirs. Through our discussions we get to know each other on a deeper level, and 95% of the time, we end the class with positive memories of our human bond. It takes time to trust the people around us. We need to give each other that time in this country, to find we are all in this together. We all wear hoodies some of the time.
