While I was working one on one with a student today she suddenly looked up- her eyes darting around the room with paranoia.
"Are there any video cameras in here?" she asked
"Why?" (I should know better than to ask...)
"Because everyday my mom says "did you go with your learning teacher? did you go with your learning teacher? I hope there are not any video cameras in here because I don't want her to see me."
"Because she doesn't like white people. Only brown ones."
and with that, she went back to work.
