Algebra class in the apartment

October 23rd, 2007

Aunt Rhoda is awesome. Once a week she takes 5 girls from underprivileged backgrounds through their math homework – today I listened in on a lesson about the quadratic equation. These girls were taken in by nuns because they either don’t have families who can provide for them or they don’t have families at all. They gathered around my Mac to see pictures of themselves, pills full of giggles. Over the years, four of Aunt Rhoda’s students from this lot have gone on to college, something she is justifiably proud of.
