I wondered what kind of results they would all come up with. I went to my desk to finish up some boring paperwork and I saw the two flags on my desk. There was the stars and stripes representing where I’ve always lived since I was born in Miami, but later moved to the Midwest after college. Then there was the one with the condor in the red, yellow, and blue background. I had come from a long line of teachers on both sides of my family. I wondered of they had to deal with any of that bureaucracy when they lived in Quito before emigrating from one continent away.
My students need to prove the brass wrong.
