Today was Xy’s first day at Eisenhower Elementary. It was strange. Only two of the old Eisenhower faculty have been re-hired. There were former Eisenhower teachers in the building, retrieving their possessions, berating the new principal, and breaking down in tears. Xy feels guilty for having a job when other good teachers don’t. But she’s excited to have the opportunity to be (a part of) creating a new school in a new system.
