I just finished one week of classes. I am always a bit excited and nervous to teach the new students. A couple highlights (lowlights?)
While walking around class I often put a hand on the should of students....amazing how many flinch as if I am going to hit them.
A student asked me what I was most proud of about America in class. I went on about the freedom and opportunity for all people. I always cite my grandfather and now Barak Obama since there are few countries, including Korea, where a man of his heritage and life experience could become the leader. After I said this about Obama, one of the students yelled, "But he is a liar". I was shocked and thought, "How is she watching Fox News here?"
