I agree with wifeyB. I just finished teaching a class to refugee children through the Junior Achievement program. I had misgivings going into the class that the material would be way over their heads, about their ability or inability to speak English, etc.
Now that the class is done I realize that all my misgivings were a result of my inaccurate perceptions of these kids. For the most part they were attentive and wanted to learn. They were polite, friendly and it was a real pleasure to be in the room with them.
