I am not sure if he was still in Jodie, Texas or not, I just saw and heard some of his thoughts and memories about his time there, and I also had some of my own thoughts that I thought about during this.
Some of his memories involved some of his time helping other teachers with problem students, and sometimes watching over the students during break times or something.
I remember a female teacher with light-color skin bringing a male student with light-color skin with dark-color hair dressed like and with his hair like a greaser who had possibly stabbed someone or threatened to stab them with a mechanical pencil, and so Mr. Amberson (Mr. Epping) talked to him.
There was another incident involving someone playing around dangerously with a pencil, and he had to tell another male student with light-color skin to stop that.
He seemed good with the students and like he liked the job.
I had a real life memory after and / or during this where back in 5th or 4th grade I accidentally stabbed myself with my lead pencil, and the lead broke in my thigh.
I was not exactly sure if the lead was in there or not, and so I never got it checked.
It was not until years later in college or after my failed attempt at college that I finally got the piece of lead out of my thigh one day when I went to check it again after all those years, and there really was a piece of lead in my thigh all those years.
I wondered what impact did that piece of lead have on me, my growth, my development, my education, and some of the problems that I developed over the years during that time and what would have happened if I had gotten it out sooner.
In the dream, I was possibly thinking about returning to college or possibly was already in the process of going to college, but I can not remember.
That is all that I can remember of this dream.
