If I consider the span of my 59 years, there is an obvious theme: I don't deal well with authority. When my high school tennis coach wouldn't let me wear my tie dyed t-shirt to a match, I stormed off the bus. I was fired as a waiter after following a patron out the door to lecture her on how to tip. As a Baltimore City teacher, I left two schools because of my inability to accept what I considered to be overbearing principals. A third principal, spotting this characteristic, sent me packing before I could quit.

Facilities law, crowding of schools to be examinedCounty Executive John G. Gary has appointed a nine-member committee to reconcile the county's adequate facilities requirements with school crowding problems and redistricting.Under law, new subdivisions are allowed in areas where a school is crowded if a nearby school has room for more students. But there is no way to make sure that students from the new subdivision would go to the school that has room.The committee is to help craft legislation that would create "standards for the Board of Education to redistrict school service areas in a timely manner" consistent with the state's Smart Growth initiative and the county's general development plan, according to the County Council resolution under which it was created.

"As the investigation continued after charges were filed, it was determined that the misdemeanor charge was the more appropriate count on which to move forward," said Kristin Fleckenstein, spokeswoman for the Anne Arundel County State's Attorney's Office.

MID-WINTER ordinarily would find high school students looking forward to their spring break, particularly if there's travel in the offing. But for many Baltimore area students it's become a disappointing time as trips abroad are being reconsidered and even canceled in the wake of war in the Middle East and the threat of international terrorism.At Notre Dame Prep, where about 20 students from two French classes were planning to spend their Easter vacation in France, the trip was called off last week after war broke out in the Persian Gulf.

One highlight of Dutch teacher Kees van Kemenade's first trip to the United States was a visit to Harpers Ferry, W.Va., site of the 1859 abolitionist raid by John Brown. Van Kemenade always tells his students about it during American history classes. "To be in a spot where something took place makes all the difference in the world," he said. "It all comes alive." Van Kemenade wants to include a trip to Harpers Ferry if he can set up a student exchange with Annapolis Area Christian School's upper school.

Twenty-four high school exchange students from Spain are using an Ellicott City coffeehouse as their window on American culture. The Jahva House is where the students, enrolled in the monthlong Global Friendships program, gather every morning to practice English and share observations about the United States. So far, this is what they've found: Americans tend to be quiet and to eat a lot. Police are strict. It's too humid, and it rains too much. But Americans are also tolerant of change and of other races.
