After Vivian’s encounter with Jason before, Vivian realizes that she wishes for the same human contact from Jason that she denied her own students in the past. In one of her flashbacks she recalls a hostile encounter with one of her students when she yells, “You can come to this class prepared, or you can excuse yourself from this class, this department, and this university. Do not think for a moment that I will tolerate anything in between … I was teaching him a lesson (Edson 59-60).” Here, Vivian has shown that in the past she was notorious for an uncompromising character. Instead of trying to productively encourage the student to pay attention, she allowed her ego to take over her and lash out on the student.

Nevertheless, a choice must be made, and the lesser of the two conundrums would be to resign from the tutoring center to uphold the integrity of one’s profession. Another avenue to overcome this ethical issue is to offer an in school based tutoring program on a voluntary basis that is open to all senior students, and thus removing any notions of “pecuniary interests” to ensure impartiality (Code of Conduct, 2016, p.14). Therefore, if the practicalities of this

The House on Mango Street is a novella that focuses a great deal of shame and the shame cycle. Sandra Cisneros often demonstrates the recurring literary conflict of man versus society is, in actuality, Esperanza versus the shame she feels from their community. This concept is best illustrated in the vignette, “The Monkey Garden.”
Personally, Sally does not have a defense under the First Amendment. This is similar to Roulette v. City of Seattle. Sally has the right to her freedom of expression, but that does not include her sitting or lying. Sally was blocking an area of the sidewalk that is considered a commercial area between 7:00 A.M.-9:00 P.M. and that is not permitted.
