Speak Chapter 2 Summary

Our Teachers are the Best…

  • The narrator's English teacher has crazy black and orange hair that covers her face. The narrator just refers to her as "Hairwoman."
  • Hairwoman gives everyone a journal. They are to write in the journals daily, but Hairwoman won't read what they write.
  • Mr. Neck does turn out to be the narrator's social studies teacher. He too provides journals.
  • The class will study American history again – they've studied it every year the narrator's been in school.
  • Mr. Neck remembers the narrator from the assembly and tells her he'll be watching her. He tells her to sit in the front of the classroom.
  • She wonders if he's suffering from post traumatic stress disorder from fighting in some war.
