I think Joseph's new foster family thinks he is shy, misunderstood, and scared. They probably think he is shy because he does not talk often or look people in the eye. I think he is labeled misunderstood by them because he is not what he seems and they know he is not what everybody thinks he is. I believe they think he is scared easily because sometimes when somebody go behind me he will panic and run away.
I think that the bus driver thinks he is a spaz and a freak. I think the bus driver thinks he is a spaz because when he said "Your that kid who has a kid. I couldn't believe it when Mr. Canton told us. Aren't you a little young?", Joseph got off the bus. He most likely thinks Joseph is a freak because he has a child at that age.
The vice principle probably thinks he is a trouble maker, irresponsible, and immature. He probably thinks he is a trouble maker because he was sent to juvenile detention. I believe the principle labels him as irresponsible because he has a child at his age. I think the principle labels him as immature because he took a pill just because he was told to by someone to do it.
I think the teachers think he is a murderer, psycho path, weird, and dangerous. The teachers most likely think he is a murderer and a psycho path because he attempted to assassinate his teacher. I believe they think he is weird because he has a child and he looks at a picture and will not show them it. I think they label him as dangerous because like I said he tried to kill his teacher and also because he took a pill before.
I think Joseph might be more timid and shy because of these labels placed on him without mercy. Honestly, I think if he did not have these labels, Joseph would probably might be at least a little more sociable.
