While I was getting ready, was kinda excited to be in the sixth grade. I was finally in middle school. However, I was also extremely scared. I was thinking about how my classes would go? Are my teachers nice?
After my 3rd child came along, I was closing in on 350lbs. I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes and was put on numerous medications. After my 4th child, I topped out at a whopping 400lbs! My health was so bad that I couldn’t even take 3 steps without losing my breath and feeling like I was going to die. The Turn Around 2770-Scan_Pic0003.jpgMy weight loss motivation came one day when I got a call when I was at work.
I grew up by myself until I was eight, but since no one really looked out for me when I was younger, I just feel like I have to look out for everyone else. I can get creative with problem solving with people or an assignment. It’s important to me that I can use classroom skills to help those around me. Being creative does not necessarily have to be artistic work,
We struggle thru many years and when it was time for me to go to college my mom could not afford to pay for me to attend so I decided I would work and pay my own way. Working two jobs and going to college was not easy but I was managing. After a
As I sat there for two days, I wondered what the house was going to look like, what the neighbors would be like, and how the schools were. I never had to think of these things before. Two days later, my parents came and picked me up. On the way to my new home, my parents explained that it was not like the house we previously lived in. That statement scared me because I did not want to live in a smaller house nor did I want to share a room with either of my sisters.
Until the fifth grade, my experience with marching bands was limited to… well, I didn’t have any experience with marching bands. Then, once I got into middle school, I went to that football game that all the fifth graders go to. I forget what they do there (and to be honest I’m not sure if they even still do it) and why, but I remember one thing very clearly: watching the marching band. They started playing their first song, and I was instantly glued where I stood, or rather, hung. I climbed on the fence to get a better view.
About a week before school started, I had a serious talk with my parents and told them that I would get this done. I remember thinking “this will be the hardest thing I’ve ever done in my life and it would either make me or break me.” When school finally started, I kept my job. I didn’t realize how tough of a challenge it would be until I found myself coming home at 11:30 with loads of work to do. I still didn’t let that bring me down and every day I showed up for classes I took things serious. I was extremely motivated to overcome something that seemed
Every student starting middle school has a conflict in making new friends the first days of school. Me myself also had problems making new friends because I was very shy. Fortunately I had one of my friends from elementary school. Although I'd love to tell you the way I made friends I changed over the year to survive middle school. Overall I was a good student in elementary, but I had many flaws and I still do.
My first years of actually being alone in school were in middle school. You see the school I went to wasn't the best but it was better than some of my other options. The beginning of middle school wasn't that hard, but after 6th grade it all went downhill. When I first started middle school I was a straight A student. My 6th grade year was also one of my most traumatic years leading up to high school.
My first day as a middle schooler was a horrible one. I faced a lot of depression and loneliness. Before I went to Chaboya Middle School I was in Ramblewood Elementary. I was on way to graduating the sixth grade and I was on my way to Sylvandale Middle School, the middle school I was supposed to go to, with all my best friends that I had in Elementary. After my graduation at Ramblewood Elementary my parents gave me some news about my middle school.
