A Hispanic bilingual ed teacher explains how she stands up for her student at school. It was windy and cold that December day. It had to be 29 degrees outside, I thought, but I’m no weather girl. Some misbehaving high school student had just pulled the fire alarm and the football field was filled with coatless teachers, students, and a grumbling staff. The class huddled together like Antarctic penguins seeking warmth. Beyond the mass, stands Luis, a Guatemalan newcomer. He’s fighting the cold with somersaults.
