Student 1:Y'all listen up. Miss Johnson got somethin' to say!
Miss Johnson: Thank you. I just want to say...I, ah. I won't, um—I will not be here next year. I'm not coming back.
Raul:How come? Is it something we did?
Miss Johnson:No, no, no, no. No, um—I never I never intended to stay. This was an unexpected job.
Raul:so if you knew you wasn't gonna stay, how come you made me promise what I promised?
Miss Johnson:I, at that time I thought I would stay.
Student 2:So how come you're leaving?
Miss Johnson:I just...have my reasons...certain reasons.
Angela:Is it because it's too sad for you, what happened to Emilio?
Miss Johnson:(Whispers) Maybe. And Durrell and Lionel and Callie. I just — I just think that...
Raul:So if you love us so much, and you so interested in our graduating, how come you choose to leave?
Raul:You sad about Durrell and Callie and Emi1io and Lionel, but we're here. What about us, huh? None of us make you feel happy? We have been working hard, and we stayed in school, man, what about us?
(Miss Johnson sighs)
Raul:Why are you packing up today when tomorrow's your last day?
Miss Johnson:I'm just getting' ahead start.
Raul:Oh, I see. What you did, when you give me the $ 200? That was the nicest thing anybody ever did for me. I don't know anybody else who would give $ 200 to a Mexican kid on his word of honour. so you gotta let me pay you back. Even if I don't graduate. All right?
Miss Johnson:Why wouldn't you graduate?
Raul:Ain't no other teacher gonna give me no "A".
Miss Johnson:Yes, they will if you work for them the way you worked for me.
Raul:No, but it was different with you, you give me an "A" to start with. I didn't have to earn it. I just had to keep it.
Miss Johnson:Are you kidding? Keeping an "A" is harder than getting an "A". Almost anyone can get an "A" once. But keeping it, that's an accomplishment.
约：开玩笑!保持A比得到A更难。每个人都会有机会得到 "A"，但一直得 A可不得了。
Miss Johnson:Oh, I know so. Do you realize the work you did this term? Do you realize that the poetry that we read is given to people in college, in college!
Raul:These same poems?
Raul:But they weren't even so hard.
Miss Johnson:No. You see? Keep working. You will graduate. I might even see you in college.
