One Student's View of Maxey Boys
Training School
M y ind has changed2 My perception of the 'ite has gone from being
a bt tentative oviiewing these kids as what they are - just kids.
1 thou hi at first, the kids would mostly keep to themselves. I did not
think they would interact with us i/they did not really have to. Bov, was
Swrong They really enoy our company. This can be seen by few guys
who always come up to Steve every week to slap hands. There is also a kid
who calls me Shor ty. At first,I didn't like it but he thought it was pretty
neat A n ckname is a showing of friendship, or at least some form of
camaraderie,
Also, the last time we played PJictionary, some kids asked my opinion
something. My impression going into this class was all the kids at
Green Oaks probably had learned to trust no one in their life. But
after a few weeks, one kid showed he trusted my opinion by asking if I
thought he could make it into Ferris State. When we played Piction-
ary, another misconception of mine was thrown out the window. I
really did not think these guys were really smart. But some of the
words involved in the game proved me wrong."
