  1. 1. Title: Important QuestionVocabulary Words/Phrases:During: through the course or duration of (a period of time)Breezed through (the questions): succeed at easilyConscientious: wishing to do what is rightDark-haired: a compound word and an adjectiveDuring my second month of nursing school, our professor gave us a pop quiz. I was aconscientious student and had breezed through the questions, until I read the last one:What is the first name of the woman who cleans the school?" Surely this was some kind ofjoke. I had seen the cleaning woman several times. She was tall, dark-haired and in her50s, but how would I know her name? I handed in my paper, leaving the last questionblank. Before class ended, one student asked if the last question would count toward ourquiz grade. Absolutely, said the professor. "In your careers you will meet many people. Allare significant. They deserve your attention and care, even if all you do is smile and sayhello". Ive never forgotten that lesson. I also learned her name was Dorothy.
