At the beginning of the semester I judged one of my students inaccurately based on her constant use of profanity and her "dumb blond girl" persona although she is black. She would ask questions that verged on stupidity, but she works hard and makes very good grades. She is one of the first to raise her hand to answer questions although the other students may laugh at her answers, she preservers. She will continually ask a question until she can comprehend the answer although my answer is the same I have to deliver it in a different way each time. I was inaccurate because I based my opinion on her abilities to curse (cuss) like a sailor and someone who I thought was dumb. It is true that you cannot judge a book by it's cover. She wants to become a nurse and I think that she will someday.
