I'm Lacie Benedict and I study Dental Hygiene at the Ohio State University of Marion!
I am a twin. (: Unfortunately he failed the third grade and we've been academically seperated since. I would've loved sharing this expierence at Ohio State with him more than anything. Other than my brother I also have an older sister who is twenty three! I'm very grateful to be expierencing my journey here at Ohio state with my bestfriend Chelsea who is more like my second sister. She is also studying Dental Hygiene. I'm eighteen years old and I graduated from Highland Highschool, so I live a good thirty minutes from the Ohio State campus at marion. I didn't always know that I wanted to join the Dental field, I first wanted to be an Interior designer. I love to rearrange the funiture in my house and also the funiture in my boyfriend's room. It gives me a "new" feeling although I didn't actually buy anything.
In chapter two something that stuck out to me is when Piedad crawls into the cubby hole and starts crying, Kozol feels that he doesn't have the right or ability as most teachers there to comfort the child. He continues the game with Elio and lets Pineapple comfort Piedad instead. "Teachers who have spent their lives with children of this age know what to do when things like this occur. They'll sometimes get down on the floor and take the child into their arms and, if they need to, hold her like that for awhile. I guess I didn't feel I had the right to do this: perhaps I didn't think that Piedad would have accepted it from me." In most cases i've seen the child will continue on with what they are doing and let the adult comfort the hurt child. This struck me as odd.
