I very much like asking everyone in for a chat. I invite parents, students, everyone. I scheduled the first meeting to greet the students when I started at the Etec Pirituba School. The meeting happened in an open area, with a mic and all. As soon as it was over, a boy came up to me: “Eliane, this is the first time I have a black principal. I had never seen a black principal in my life. You have no idea what this means to me.” Today I am quite sure of what I represent to that black girl I once was.
