Just FYI, responding to the the ghetto comment above, Mrs Zimmerman teaches across the street from a project housing structure. The school is probably 70-80% afro-american and of color. She is a talent, widely respected in her school and is probably the most highly educated teacher at this level. With no context, your assumption of a high tax zone is not only wrong, its presumptuous. Her accomplishments have been amidst a lowered budget and teacher cutbacks. Her kids are as 'real' as they get. Probably better for you to sit and take a lesson.
