When Demetria Foster was a young girl, she would invite her friends in the neighborhood over to play school. They would gather chairs from the all over the house and line them up in neat rows in the front yard.

The class would then work from the books on whatever assignment she had decided on for that day. Demetria was four when she started “teaching.” Now, she is living her childhood dream by teaching business courses at Berkeley College.
