ANTHONY HAMILTONAnthony Hamilton is a writer who lives in Hayward, California. He is the author of several books, including The Autobiography of Strong Child and Shattered Lives.
when I was 10 or 11, a teacher humiliated me. We were to tell what our father's occupation was. My dad was a group supervisor of schools, (technically her boss.) I perhaps didn't say it properly as it was a mouth ful, and she didn't expect what I was saying. She was very rude and said back mumbling what I was trying to say. I was humiliated. Like Anthomy Hamilton, I am a writer of 7 books, a public speaker. Three years ago, I was celebrated in my home town. I wonder if she read the newspapers, I wonder if she read about me. Recently, I saw a photo of her with a junior class.
The moral of the story is never humiliate your students.
