I work in a district that has some Title I schools and others that are incredibly affluent. I work in the Title I side, and I love it. I work in summer school with the students from the "rich" side of the district and I'm always happy to return to "my" kids. I feel at home there because I grew up in a similar socioeconomic area. This past week I interviewed in a district that basically all Title I. I feel like by being white and not bilingual, people are skeptical about my desire to work in that type of school. I think in trying to express my preference for working with the EL students and families, I may have overdone it and left a worse impression than if I'd just kept silent. I felt good about the interview until the last five minutes or so when we were talking about that issue. I hate interviews. It's so hard to say the right thing.
