    school. When I asked my parents to share stories, they humbly explained that they couldn’t assist with my literacy advancement. As Haitian and Jamaican citizens, they told me that I learned from my teachers and by my intellect, though they are a magnificent support system, always praising my efforts for high achievement. However, one story makes me smile when I hear it. At three years of age, I started day care with no knowledge of the English language; and thankfully, the school was welcoming…

    We eat an awkward welcome/goodbye barbeque lunch with our parents and then we’re left to ourselves in McGloin, marooned on the second floor, what’s supposed to be a common room that apparently doubles as an overflow for wayward freshmen. Ryan and Tom are from Nebraska, close enough to leave campus for family dinners, visits with high school friends. So on the weekends it’s just me and Seth, a Chicago kid with the strangeness and attitude to prove it. We have two primary activities: we drink, and…

    I have chosen to compare and contrast the following two works of arts: (1) Faith Ringgold, God Bless America, 1963 and (2) Shirin Neshat, Rebellious Silence, from the series Women of Allah, 1994. Although they dramatically differ in appearance, style and interpretation, they convey a similar message. When looking at both Ringgold's God Bless America and Shirin Neshat's Rebellious Silence, the viewer can deliberately feel the tone the artworks set because of the color and the unity. Ringgold's…

    receiving a resignation from their leader and seeking assurance that the last 8 years have been a success.

    because I care whether or not you like me, but because I feel that you respected what I tried to do for each of you. I have always tried to be honest and upfront with you and challenge you to achieve more than even you thought possible of yourselves. It is very rewarding to be recognized by you for that. Every year, I leave my students with the saying that the greatest form of respect is to be challenged to do more than we think possible, because it shows that someone believes in us. I do…
