    You will lose a lot of sleep.  What many people don't realize about teaching such a population is that you take the kids home with you--figuratively--painfully.  You worry about them an inordinate amount--not about their homework--about their lives.  Also, you learn that children living desperate lives can be mean--can lie--can hurt all around them.  I worked with this type of population--it can be very rewarding--they cling onto you--it can be very exasperating--it cannot be easy.  Good luck--remember, sometimes the best way to show compassion is to be demanding.

    Apres Bush, le deluge.
