  • Finding Alex
  • Kyle Escobar English II- 1st
  • Alex wakes up and gets ready for school. He pins a bird that he was given from his mom on the bottom of his shirt, where it's barely noticeable.
  • Alex is often disrespectful to his parents...
  • Whatever. I'm going to school.
  • Honey, I made you and your sisters breakfast!
  • ...and to his teachers.
  • Alex, pay attention and stop talking!
  • Why don't you just teach better?
  • He starts to doze off in class.
  • Alex dreams, and talks to himself.
  • What's the point of being so rude all the time?
  • Eh, I just don't care.
  • Suddenly, Alex wakes up to an alarm clock, and finds himself having kids and being a teacher. He puts the pin on the corner of his shirt like always.
  • Alex goes downstairs and awkwardly makes breakfast when he hears kids screaming.
  • Oh god, who are these people, why are they so loud so early?
  • ...and experiences firsthand the disrespect he gives off.
  • Here's your, uh, breakfast.
  • Alex's mom comes and puts the kids in line, and Alex finds out his mom still lives with him.
  • Hey, respect your FATHER!
  • You must be out of it, Alex, you're usually more controlling.
  • Alex takes his kids to school, and finds the classroom he's supposed to be in, and braces for the worst. 
  • I haven't taught a day in my life, what do I even do??
  • He ends up teaching the same class he woke up in, and struggles to take role.
  • Dylan? Dylan??
  • Namaste.
  • Hey Dylan, come here often?
  • An announcement for the pledge of allegiance happens, and the class falls quiet.
  • Alex gains control of the class to take role, and realizes something he never did before.
  • Hey guys, I'm going to need you all to be quiet and listen while I take role. Please Respect that.
  • Alex has a sudden thought, and begins to rethink his whole life.
  • I've never thought about respect from my point of view now... I put everyone through bad stuff and I'm going to change that.
  • After a long day, he heads home with the kids, and talks to his mom.
  • Remember when you were always disrespectful?  I'm glad you grew up and changed for the better.
  • Today was more tiring than usual, but I was respected by my students!
  • He begins feeling drowsy, and suddenly falls asleep.
  • What?
  • Just remember what happened today...
  • I learned a lot, and I'm glad i could improve on myself.
  • Alex wakes up in the classroom as a kid, confused but changed.
  • Alex wakes up in the classroom he fell asleep in, confused but changed.
  • Alex, are you even paying attention?
  • Yes ma'am, I am paying attention!
  • Did he just.... show respect?
  • He places his pin in a more visible place, and replies to everyone's confusion with two words:
  • I've changed.
