Storyline

Francisco Romero is a small-town teacher who decides to try his luck in Mexico City. He joins the faculty of Prep school number 10 "Rosario Castellanos" and soon realizes that his work is more demanding than he expected; in addition to having to prove himself as a teacher, he must prove himself as a human being. He will find that, in order to make a difference with his students, he will also have to assume the roles of counselor, psychologist, doctor, and even detective. The themes this story deals with are: dropping out of school, teen pregnancy, street gangs, men who abuse their stepdaughters, teenagers forced to work to support their families, and alcoholic parents who lead their children down the same path - that is, problems of a very real nature, experienced by high school students the world over. This is also a love story. Both students and faculty fall victim to Cupid's random arrows, beginning with Francisco and Adriana (the school counselor) who, nonetheless, must put their ...

I'm not one to watch Spanish Soap Operas, I started watching this one because of my little cousin. It's one of the funniest shows I've ever seen. It's a classic show. One of the many things that bother me about this show is that one of the characters Gabriela was raped by the gym teacher. As a result Gabriela becomes pregnant. After her child is born it seems as though everyone thinks that she chose to have sex with her gym teacher. The gym teacher comes back into her life after the child is born and no one seems to find this odd. It's a soap opera I really don't know why I'm expecting much. Bottom Line it is funny. I especially love Douglas and his car! I want a car with my name on the side.
