Mary Hurtley has worked at Highland Middle since 1996, and will be retiring after this school year. Middle school students are her favorite population to work with, she loves her role supporting the growth of students during the middle school years. Mary’s interactions with student were very similar to Dawn’s, caring, upbeat, and no nonsense. Not having any experiences with a school nurse, I was, at first, a bit surprised at how limited
The beginning of ten Boom’s life started out in the Netherlands when she was born on April 15, 1892. Ten Boom had a very peaceful childhood and was a very happy girl. She grew up in a watch shop which was owned by her father, Casper ten Boom. This watch shop was also her home that her whole
Despite the family’s poverty, Nina Simone’s earliest images of her childhood were pleasant enough. “My first conscious memory of my mother is her singing while she cooks, while she washed clothes” she said. In an interview Simone revealed that “Momma never seemed to worry about being poor or hungry...We weren’t ever hungry ‘cause Momma knew how not to do that It is true we were very poor, but we didn’t feel the poverty because of the way she did things.” Her mother could not stay at home as she carried on a family tradition and became ordained as a travelling Methodist minister, supplementing the spare income with cleaning and domestic work to put food on the table for her family of ten. Although Eunice was the youngest in the family, at three years old she was burdened with the responsibility of nursing her sick father after an operation. “I would take him for a walk every day and fix his meals, I was so happy” she recalled.
Peg stated, “For the first time since my paralysis set in, I realized there was something worse than having polio.” She is referring to having a family who couldn 't visit or abandoning her. Alice was abandoned by her parents at the young age of 3, Dorothy could not go home because there was no one to care and tend to her needs and her parents try to visit once a month, Shirley’s family live too far to visit often so come only once every few months, and Renee’s family also lived very far away (200 miles)! Family is what kept Peg going, everyone needs a support system and they did not abandon Peg. They took her home to visit a couple of times and tried their best to accommodate to her needs. They were a very loving and close-knit family and their presence in room 202 gave something for the girls to look forward to each week.
Majority of young females in our city wait eagerly for the day they can turn babysitting into cash. But for my sister, there was no cash and hanging out with her friends on the weekend quickly changed to babysitting her younger sister. Regardless, my twenty-four-year-old sister says she is
I didn't pay much attention to what she was telling me about how amazing he was or how she was describing him all I don't recall anything except her smile on her face.My weakness always been my sisters so i thoight if anyone could make my sister smile shine like that then that person most be great for her. She always used to come home happy after going on dates with him you know like going to the movies go for dinner,lunch, or just stay in the car type of dates. After a couple months of her being in that relationship she started coming home crying I would say almost everyday. Locked herself in the room and call me on the phone so I could go and just hug her. Asking me what is she doing wrong but my response most of the time was “ you're doing too much, you're too much of a woman and not everybody can handle that.” She made me always promised to not tell my mom about it day by day to keep my promised but from every tear that came out her
Unlike her mother she didn't believe she could be anything she wanted to be beside herself. after all the year neither one of them mentioned what happened at the piano bench. after a few years on her !3th birthday her mom offered her the piano because it was her piano and she was the only one who could play it, Jing-mei denied the gift at first. After her parents died and she went back to the apartment she saw the piano under the window of the living room and she found the pieces she play at the recital and she discovered that there are two sides to the song “Pleading Child” and “Perfectly Contented”. Throughout Two Kinds Jing-mei’s mother was hard on her about becoming a
It was 2010, sometime around October, my whole family was in my great grandmother 's house, she said to “next time we go to your grandparents house remind me to grab my bathing suit , bye bye girls love you” (kiss kiss) (she only said that due to the fact that she was trying to impress my father and had a huge “crush” on him). Man she was funny, I wouldn’t have even thought I heard her voice, the last time I gave her a hug, and the last time I got to be around my best friend... One day my parents got a call from my grandparents and they said something that wasn’t good. I’m not sure what the exact things are that were said, but my mom drove my dad, sister, and I all to the hospital. We finally arrived and I saw, honestly people I didn’t know or people that I haven’t seen in a couple years. I remember seeing everyone hugging, but my sister and I were told to go sit down.
February 14,1975 at Kaiser Hospital (no longer open) in Cleveland, Ohio Sabrina Lattice McIntosh was born. The first child of Regina and Greg McIntosh (my grandparents). “My mother knew someone named Sabrina, she liked it so she gave me the name”, mom says. Growing up she had a great childhood, who wouldn’t enjoy the spotlight? My grandparents were so happy to finally have their first baby!
It would have to do. She found a paintbrush under the workbench, and made her way back to the living room, where the mess was. You see, Ava didn’t ever do these things on purpose. She was only four, after all. She was a sweet little angel of a girl, who loved her preschool, and loved her parents, and loved her new baby brother.
