They ate my upper middle class white butt for lunch But man did I LEARN from my kids Hard lessons

    Epub The Water is Wide PDF/EPUB × The Water Kindle - ✓ gigonog.me ✓ water book, wide free, The Water epub, The Water is Wide MOBII realize this book has an underlying focus on racism in the South in the late '60s but the other plot line I what resonated with me a gifted teacher unfairly losing his job I lost mine 10 years ago gosh as long ago now as I taught It was uite difficult for me to read how inspired Conroy was in the classroom how much he cared about his students and their minds and futures only to be told he's insubordinate and no longer wanted To fire me so insensitively is one thing but they try to destroy my personal reputation YES I know this feeling Conroy and I are both not ass kissers which in the education system that runs on a political hierarchy is a much craved expectation All teachers have worked with a Mrs Brown a Piedmont an Edna We all have our opinions about these people To me the discrimination was agai

    Epub The Water is Wide PDF/EPUB × The Water Kindle - ✓ gigonog.me ✓ water book, wide free, The Water epub, The Water is Wide MOBIThis was the first Pat Conroy book I read and several years later I had an opportunity to spend some time on Yamacraw the island where he taught school It was a magical place with sandy roads shaded by great oak trees dripping with spanish moss The people lived in backwards conditions but they were tied to the land and their relationship with the land and the ocean in a way that few if any of the rest of us will ever experience This is an inspiring uplifting book and I am a better person for having read it
