Tara, I hope you didn't think I was attacking you. I really understand where you are coming from but I only wish you would see what I have seen as my schooling has progressed. I probably will end up teaching in an affluent white school, but my reasons are quite different than yours. Just give yourself time to realize those reasons. Laura
p.s. email me if you want to talk...I think I was in the same boat your are in.
