We are obliged to

deal with certain challenges.

With different cultures

and its traditions.

It enters the classroom.

Serious mismatches family!

Basically, our schools,

schools of New York City

is a great experiment.

A large laboratory

for what we call:

the American experience.

And as teachers,

we are not prepared

to deal with this great task.

We are not.

This is the sad truth.

So after lunch,

give each exercises

designed to demonstrate

what we all share,

teachers and students.

Because our research shows

to build this common basis

at the beginning of the year, once

the first weeks,

is the key to give everything right.

and, most importantly,

for academic success.

He destroyed me.

On the last weekend, Tom

prepared a delicious sangria.

He made the request?

How feeling?

Okay. I found

a ring in his drawer.

- Liar.

- Okay. I was looking, yes.

- Of course! E. ..?

Big! A hundred and a half,

not seen well because he

was in the bathroom,

but I will look better tonight.

Sorry, it took a while.

How was today?


Was in training.

I believe that we deal with

children from different cultures.

Teaching it in a

day, is not so easy.

- Vai take a week, Matan.

- Still.

Not an easy task.

There are blacks in schools?

Do not use this

word here at home.

And then, not all are

black. Not true?



That is why

need the training.


Orthodox teachers?

Mom said that

would be something normal.

Anybody want

More questions?

I would also

eat something.


I tell you that I spoke with

his aunt this afternoon. You know why?

It was a meeting with

a suitor on Sunday.

Really? Can I go?

What is this?

I said I would

in line, okay?

For the first meeting,

she has a list?

Or they have to

Rochel know before?

What does it mean?

- Why?

- Because ...


No need to worry.

Is one of the most

exciting of his life.

I promise.

Remember that time

fills me with joy.

And you too, huh?

What this!

What this!

- Stop.

- But it is true.

I remember ...

to climb the stairs

the flat e. ..

Looks like it was yesterday!

The aroma, light, color.

I remember that before

hit the green door ...

Green no way,

dark red.

- Red?

- And still is.

Whatever it may be, before

knocking on the door, I had a feeling,

an indescribable feeling,

and when his mother opened the door

I knew.

What this.

We can make a circle

better? Looks like a broken egg.

So is a little better.

So we will continue

to know us.

Say your name and

something that demonstrates

who you are in reality.

Something interesting.

Nobody? Shy?

Have to overcome

that, otherwise,

these children will benefit

advantage of you.

Understand? Am I right?

You are already

teachers for a long time?

Want to know if I

bound to use it? No.

People ask me

much on this, but ... no.

I decided to use. It was my choice.

As an expression

of my beliefs

and what is written in the Koran,

on the family and modesty.


I do not know if it is interesting,

but it is something.

It is quite interesting.

I think the veil beautiful.

It is in fashion.

more looks when the USA.
