Mercedes Isabel Sota is the Superintendent of Schools in Mancotal,
north of Lake Apanás, in Northern Nicaragua. The kids in that
school probably fear her like I used to fear Mr. Armstrong. He was
my high school history teacher and was so respected and feared by
all students that we always tried our best and then some. You never
wanted to let him down or cross him. Never miss a class, never be
late, never have your shirt untucked. Ever. I got the sense
that Directora Sota is like Mr. Armstrong....
