What does Dr.Seymour find in Miss Narwin's file that he could use against her?

Expert Answers

An illustration of the letter 'A' in a speech bubbles

Unfortunately, Dr. Seymour finds an application for a grant that Miss Narwin had written, requesting that the school pay for her to take a summer staff development course.  In the grant, she makes the mistake of admitting that she often feels disconnected or sort of old-fashioned when dealing with this newest generation of students.  She feels that the summer teaching course would help her sharpen her teaching skills but also perhaps give her pointers on how to be more relevant and engaging to her current students. 

Dr. Seymour uses this grant application against Miss Narwin in order to prove that she admits she may be too old-fashioned or outdated to keep up with today's students.
