Carlos is often called upon to help students in his class who do not speak English. He used to be proud to help others, but now he is beginning to resent the intrusion this responsibility has on his life. When his teacher asks him to work with another new student, he finally approaches her with the idea of having Marta, someone who used to need his help, be the one to help the new student. His idea ends up being good for everyone concerned.
