Some teachers hope for a classroom of students who are engaged, eager-to-please, and easy-going.
C’Sherica Shaw, a recipient of the Charles Butt Scholarship for Aspiring Teachers and a student at the University of North Texas at Dallas, wants a class full of the ones who aren’t.
When everyone else feels flustered or upset because of a challenging student, C’Sherica exudes calm — a sense of purpose washes over her.
“The kind of kids that make other people want to quit their job — those are the ones I want,” she says.
