The Great Debate

Upon arrival at KIPP earlier this month, multiple classmates and I were assigned 1 task that was to be completed by the end other month; the files of students had to be updated to their current grade level and then filed appropriately.  As we walked to second floor and into the back office, I found myself shuddering at the site of these sinister columns of files stacked to the celling.  One of the monolithic file stacks was assigned to 2 additional classmates and myself.  Fortunately, this daunting task soon became an exercise in who had mastered their renal block drugs. As the self proclaimed sovereign ruler and subsequent master of drug mnemonics, I offered a challenge to my fellow classmates; for every file that required sorting, the first letter of the students last name must be matched to a drug and its corresponding mechanism/side effect/ drug contraindications

As the month came to a close and the mountain of files became little more then a molehill, our contest finally came to its conclusion. To this day, the winner of our contest is still fervently debated. It is only a matter of time until the alleged results of this contest find its place among the great controversies of our age as Atlantis, the Bermuda Triangle, and Annunaki genetics have. One thing is for certain though, our knowledge of the topic increased exponentially and was only paralleled by the noted appreciation and gratitude of the KIPP staff.
