For my interview, I interviewed a woman by the name of Mrs. Miskell. She is a close family friend and also teaches at the elementary school that I used to attend. Mrs. Miskell has been teaching for fifteen years. She has a class of 21 including 2 special education children who are mainstreamed into her class for a few areas of study. She team-teaches one day a week with the remedial math teacher, and one day a week with the remedial reading teacher. Her children switch classes with one other class for social studies and science.

Allowing them to carry on in the classroom would only retard the other students and not allow them to learn. That is the way you have to look at that.

She told me about the formulated plan that the school enacted, where all visitors to the school have to stop into the main office and sign into a book and then they receive a special visitors badge, that they have to wear at all times while in the school.

That was the last straw for her, Mr. F elaborate on how he tried to explained, and tell what all was said but she did not want to hear it. She gave him a serve whipping and locked him in his bedroom with only his bed to sleep in. No T.V., phone and games, nothing that he could or would enjoy for some time playing with. That is when he felt that the only person at the time he could ever trust betrayed him. That why he spoils Nicole, because he wants her to have a better life than he did. But many times Nicole will ask for something and her father knows she does not need it but he will give it to her anyway. Nicole knows that her father is a push over and personally that is why I
think that she wants to live with him other that her mother. When it comes to giving Nicole anything she wants, she got to get it.
Mr. F likes to make up excuses on why Nicole needs unnecessary items. Once when going to the store, Nicole wanted a very large pack of gum and I looked at him as if she did not need it and he replied “it keeps her quiet at home.” Nicole has enough things at home to keep her quiet, but it is like he just can not say no to her. Nicole knows when she is with me; it is a limit on what she can get. And if and when she gets an attitude she knows I will put her back in her place quick and fast. Mr. F knows how I am about how he spoils Nicole.
