Despite her love of teaching and years of dedication to her school and her students, she is having a difficult time finding even minimal enthusiasm as she starts her twenty-eighth year. Retirement is looking pretty good since she finds little reward in her work and fears she no longer really makes a difference in the lives of her students. According to Liz, she is qno match for MTV, I-Pods, or reality television, and hates feeling irrelevant.q An aging father and the marital problems of her dearest friend only add to her stress as Liz tries to cope with her own negativity and frustrations. When a scheduling error places Henry Maxwell in one of her honors classes Liz's indifference towards the ill-prepared and pitiful student seems contrary to all the principles she used to hold dear and she soon feels ashamed of her lack of compassion.
