Alone in the Classroom

Alone in the Classroom by Elizabeth Hay

She stood at the board, feeling revolted, and in that moment he came through the door.

To be caught like that is to be caught forever, tied to the person in a new and endless way, for you’ve worn your hatred on your face. After that, he began his extra, inexplicable attentions to her.

We let these people into our lives. They enter, and because we let them stay to work on our minds and hearts and imaginations, it’s as if we have invited them in.

–Elizabeth Hay, Alone in the Classroom, page 32
