I am asked many questions every day, but this was the winner. Back in 1990, during the first Gulf War, I was teaching seventh and eight grade. One morning, during the bombing campaign, I was standing next to our principal on the playground discussing school business. One of the student came up to us. She seemed worried. She asked if any of the bombs were going to fall at our school in Monterey Park. We assured her that she was safe and that the war was on the other side of the world. She had nothing to fear at that time. She looked a little sad and disappointed. Before she turned to walk away she said, "I guess I'll do my homework then." We had been concerned for her state of mind since there was a lot of coverage of the war on television, she had hoped to get out of turning in her homework.
What questions have you asked your teachers?
