I think in general, people need to be more open minded----need to get out of their own cocoon and maybe learn a thing or three about others. Empathy is nice too----not that this other teacher needed to have empathy for the student----but I guess maybe some understanding of why he might speak with an accent. If she had taken the time to learn about Arash what you did, she would have enormous respect for him and would see his STRONG English as a miracle of sorts, instead of seeing his English with a heavy accent as a weakness. I have a feeling that other prof is in her own world----self absorbed to the thousanth degree. She'll never get it. That's a shame for her students.

Well said, Angelo.

Yeah----and re-reading your post, something else occurs to me: You wrote a lot more about Arash than you did about that other teacher. But even so----I think your story says a lot more about her than it does about him. He's an achiever----an unusually gifted person too. He's probably overcome a lot to get to where he is. There's a lot of details "missing" about her----but I think that without judging her, I can read an awful lot in. I think I've probably met her before, many times.

Humility is a virtue we often overlook. Nowadays, it's all about "tooting your own horn."

In my day, 'tooting your own horn' meant something totally different.

Thank you, I'll be here all week. Don't forget to tip your waitress.

Exactly Keith. Humility these days is seen more as a negative personality trait by many who seek wealth via fame and exposure. Personally I take it as a great compliment.
