Victoria, The Dropout Who Teaches High School

Roberto Martinez

Victoria Pool was thrilled to get her first job in education. But that first faculty meeting, where teachers discussed what and how they would teach the book "To Kill A Mockingbird" took an abrupt turn when it came to light that Victoria had never read it. 

When asked condescendingly how this could be possible, she replied in-kind, "I'm sorry, I was probably getting high or skipping school. But don't worry, I understand racism."

Hilarious, well told, and heartfelt, be sure to listen to this Worth Repeating story.
