Mrs. Santora, an English teacher, came up to me one morning before school and said, "I'd like to talk with you about Jesse Lamar, one of my students. Jesse is bright though a bit quiet. He misses school a lot but is never a problem when he is present. He doesn't always do his homework, but what he does complete is pretty good. Although he's tempted, he hasn't become involved with street life, which is a good sign."
