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.


  1. Here’s another great fact about Christy’s getting hired: She’s one of 60 teachers hired, out of a pool of over 1000!

    I want to believe that process weeded out the incompetent teachers, giving the re-emerging schools a shot at a fresh start.
