I'm sick and tired of people generalizing without educating themselves. I'm sick and tired of people blindly giving in to fear-mongering and stereotyping.
I spend every day with Muslims. I am not worried about my safety. I don't fear that one of them will blow themselves up in my classroom.
The biggest issue I have with my students is tardiness. Tardiness. Not terrorism. Not evil plotting. Not suicide vests. Not ISIS. Tardiness.
The Muslims I teach are looking to get away from war, fighting and deprivation.
