Hundert is a history teacher at a boarding school called St. Benedict School, he teaches his students about the “ideals of great men before them.” Hundert attempts to “mold” (p.163) the characters of his students, specifically Sedgewick Bell. As he interacts with Sedgwick over the course of the year, he usually states that he failed to live up to his “code of morals.” Through the text Hundert has changed, or developed, his actions according to the situation he’s in. Hundert sees himself playing an important role in his students’ lives as he describes his classroom as a “tribute to the lofty ideals of man, which I hoped to inspire my boys, at the same time to fleeing nature of nature accomplishment, which I hoped would temper their ambition with humility,” (p.156-157). His expectations of his students are set high that he

His father, Mr. Perry’s reasoning would be better understood if Neil was failing classes along with acting but he was not, he was just trying to be himself. His father’s selfish and nonunderstanding mindset destroyed Neil’s entire

Similarly, both George Lopez and real fathers take critical backlash from their families. George Lopez grew up unaware of his father’s whereabouts, supposing that he was dead according to his mother’s word; therefore, every time Max, George’s son, mentions the void of his grandfather, George fabricates lies of him (Season two, Episode 1). He says, “He [George’s father] could handle any emergency,” and he says, “My dad loved the house to be filled with music.” Angie, George’s wife, criticizes George on this because Max might obtain the truth of the matter one day; thus, proving his
