Letter to the Editor: See the whole person

I am one of the few black students at Archer in sixth grade. My other friend — we were always getting mixed up not by students by teachers. It really annoyed me, and so far it has happened four times. I think the importance of me sending this letter was to spread awareness about this issue even though it doesn’t seem like a big deal. It still bothers me because it feels like the teachers don’t really take in the differences between us. It feels like they just see that we’re black. Me sending this letter wasn’t to make any of the teachers feel bad, it was to just share my feelings.
