Brian is the nerd whose parents do not absolutely approve a grader lower than A. He was once about to commit suicide by bringing a gun at school, because he got a B in one of his class. In the movie, Claire asked him to do everybody’s essay because he was the “smartest” from all of them and he agreed because he liked being the smart one. Alisson is known as the basket case, where she was the “abnormal” one. In the beginning, she was the weird one who was very quiet.
Rose describes: “I loved getting good grades from MacFarland…I had made something of value” (Rose, 1989, p. 9). He had met his teacher’s expectation and that made him feel accomplished.

I know Jairo was there and we were playing soccer on the road just like any other kid would but as soon as we heard the police sirens we ran inside I tripped and fell and scraped my knee and while I was laying down on the floor in pain Jairo thought it would be funny just to laugh at the top of his lungs. My dad heard me sobbing and went outside but the police stopped him and I just looked at this one cop like "really, I'm over here crying and you decide to stop him from helping me!?"

As I walk out of Mr.Fiedler’s fourth hour social class, I wonder what kind of mood the evil Mrs.Berntson will be in today. I turn the corner and see all of the seventh graders come out room 224 screaming in fright. Oh great, I thought to myself. I approached the door and carefully step into the classroom making sure nothing jumps out at me. I step into the classroom only to see my witch looking teacher with black hair and warts covering her face standing in the corner of the room.
They all take off, I wait with anticipation being the last leg of the race puts a burden on you. I watch, I wait adrenaline rises, heart pounding…my eyes have been visually running the race since we started. I get to the line we are in fourth place, I get handed the baton. I’ am everywhere but there my mind tells me, your parents are here with you. Encouraged, I keep sprinting and sprinting and I don’t stop, the crowd fall silent and how this Hispanic boy just passed everyone up…the last one-hundred meters and I’m dying I use what little I have left to pass the finish line and we finish in

“And all of a sudden I'm crying in front of everybody. I wish I was invisible but I'm not.” (Cisneros, 3) said Rachel when she couldn’t do something but wore the sweater that smelled like cheese while the teacher was blaming her for lying.

Crying in inappropriate places makes them feel weak and defenceless, which worsens their traumas and leads to turn in upon
Recess started off pretty boring we just ran out there and a bunch of ignorant second graders started yelling at us for no reason. This one second grader started to get on my nerves so I told him to shut up and he told me to make so I went up to him and kicked him in the shin. He ran up and then told on me so I went hiding in the tubes on the playground. It took them a while to find me since I was in such a good hiding spot. Then when they found me I was I knew I was gonna be in big trouble.
