In 7th grade, my attitude was terrible. I would talk back to teachers, yell at other students and not do my homework. My mother tried to get my brother and I to go to therapy but it never actually happened. My similarities to Hamlet 's emotions occured in middle school when I saw my father 's true colors. My mother had recently lost her job and consequently it became tight financially.
Overall, my decision to switch schools was a much needed and very freeing change. I probably should have switched schools in the middle of 7th grade, but I felt hesitant and didn’t think I should switch schools. I remained at Ocosta for the final semester of 7th grade. I actually ran for a position in the ASB office, promising myself that if I became an officer, I’d
I remember the day I received a little yellow paper that said, “Cinthia Gordillo you are eligible to participate in commencement.” I started tearing up because I knew that I had accomplished one of my dreams as well as my mother’s dream. My mom decided to leave her home town in Honduras because of the lack of jobs and violence. I was born in Madera, CA four months after my mom migrated to California. Growing up my mom emphasized the importance of education however, out of her six children I was the first one who decided to pursue a higher education. Three traits that identify me are achiever, learner, and diversity.
I then went to Ransom Middle School for sixth and eighth-grade because I had to be homeschooled again in seventh grade due to having a major surgery. I missed a lot of school growing up because of my cancer treatments and surgeries, but I never fell behind, and I always had teachers that looked out for me. For high school, I went to J.M. Tate High School, and graduated with highest honors. I loved school from kindergarten all the way through
Marta Salinas’ realistic fiction story “The scholarship Jacket”, takes place at a small school in Texas. Martha, a straight A plus student, was finally in 8th grade, her year to receive the valedictorian jacket. There are many troubles leading up to Martha receiving the jacket, such as the teachers changing the policy to make her pay $15. This changed the meaning of the jacket because it was no longer a reward. Marta Salinas created the theme that hard work pays off, she displays this theme by showing how Martha feels with point of view, and foreshadowing.
I am Telemachus. Walking down the hallway made me nervous. The stares of many people, who thought I shouldn’t be up there, scorched my black sweater and made me burn with embarrassment, making me wish I hadn’t worn so many layers despite it being thirty degrees outside. Here I was, a third grader going to a winter class for fourth and fifth graders. My dad had signed me up for a class for my grade in order to get ahead in regular school, but after twenty minutes, it was pretty clear that I had already went through this material during school.
I discovered that I was gay in the seventh grade. It seemed like there was no one out there like me. I felt alone during my final years of middle school, and I neither knew nor found anyone else who had gone through what I expected in high school. Nevertheless, time never stops and I was swept in with its waves. Transitioning into a Catholic high school should not have been difficult because I had been attending Catholic schools since kindergarten; however, knowing that I was gay altered something.
One of my most cherished memories is some of my color guard and practices like my first day or when we were the half time show for the football game. i remember my first day of color guard clearly it was the summer after sixth grade i was officially a seventh grader I was so exited my dad dropped me off at the high school and made the worst pun ever so what color are you guarding i think you'll get purple i rolled my eyes and said that's not how it works and left there were so many people since for the first two weeks the high school guard and middle school guard work together to get to know the basic moves and get into the groove of things i remember the first thing we learned was i drop spin for me it was the hardest thing in the world but
I arrived in this country thinking I was going to be in the most challenging classes and be at the top but reality smacked me in the face the first day I entered eighth grade. To my disadvantage the counselors did not care about my previous grades in Puerto Rico. Seeing that my parents were only able to speak Spanish, the school deduced my English was not well-developed enough and consequently I was placed in English-language learner (ELL) classes. After testing me in reading, writing, and hearing I was
like I want to be a forensic psychologist take 12 years of college to be a it and just have my dream job and not have to worry about money and just fix the wrong I've done to people. I've always want really good grades I hated that I slacked off my first two years of high school because honestly it didn't help me at all but my junior and senior year I really started to buckle down and get serious because I don't want life to be hard for me I want I mean I know there's always going to be bumps in life but I least wanted to at least try to have a smooth journey. like pretty soon I'm going to get a car I'm going to get an apartment I might even go to Florida and go to the technical school down there and they have a huge forensic department I have a lot of goals in my life right now I just need to start taking action for them.

I may have a lot of fear, but i still always believe in myself What.
Marching band taught me how to love again. A past band member who had actually been right in front of me for the past five years was standing on the sideline that night and somehow I believe that God placed him in my life to show me that my future is right in front of me. If it would not have been for my boyfriend waving at me one year ago, I do not really know how my life would have turned out. When Alex came into my life everything shifted, I actually had something to look forward to every morning I woke. Alex made everything better and actually took my mind off the fact that my parents were getting a divorce.
After having his first child the other Wes Moore had been missing school, and later dropped out. Having a child put a lot of strain on the other Wes Moore. And without a high school diploma and a criminal record it would be nearly impossible for Wes to find a job. For the time being, however, Wes was able to stay with his aunt Nicey. Nicey told him “to either get a job or go to school” (110).
After trying for many years to get better grades with little to no success, I gave up on trying and just accepted whatever grade I ended up with. When I got into middle school and started taking classes like Algebra 1 and Spanish that would count for high school credit, it became very apparent to me that the grades that I get in these classes could very easily affect my high school GPA and my ability to get into a college of my choice. It was this realization that pushed me to further improve myself and my better being. During the seventh grade I got diagnosed with ADHD and started a medication regiment that significantly helped me focus and understand the lessons that my teachers were teaching. All of this was great and my grades did significantly improve, but the cons
