Her exact words were “I promise, I will be there soon.” Maria Morales- my mother did not come to El Salvador until eleven months later. Not having my mother by my side, I was forced to develop a self reliant mentality. For the past three months, I told myself she would be with me soon, yet a phone call once a week is the only thing we would receive from her. At age eleven, I was learning how to trust myself rather than, my own mother and every day, I still manage to keep a smile on my face until the night of her birthday. I sat on my aunt’s bed, hoping she would be the one to knock on the door, but I remember she was still in the United States working
Another example from the story is when Danny has a recurring dream about a man coming to hurt him with a mallet (coincidence?). He dreamed of running down the halls as the “large dark shape, holding some sort of mallet, came for him, swinging it back and forth into the walls, saying ‘COME OUT HERE AND TAKE YOUR MEDICINE!’”. (King 291). This well supports the claim because the dark shape may be reminding Danny of his father, the night Jack got drunk and broke his arm for messing up his office. While his dad wasn’t a mallet wielding psychopath, the hotel may be trying to direct Danny’s dreams towards relating to that night in order to distance the Torrence's from each other.
For example, chapter thirteen and fourteen after Rod has been shrunk and get his own jet back, he gets pushed out of the ship and is falling to the ground. He scared he is falling to his death until he realizes because of what Tar Gibbons did to his mind, he knows how to used. The intense climax in these chapter will be fun to read while the students follow along. Another chapter with an intense scene will be chapter seventeen and eighteen. Where the aliens and Rod about to trap Billy and in order to stop Rob he shouts “Rod, stop right there!
One particularly oxygen-deprived pupil stood just by the passageway in front of a spell bound audience as he described his own plan to release two oiled pigs in the school, numbered one and three in order to trick the staff. Trite such as this was about as original as a hipster in a vinyl (record) store and was unlikely to ever reach fruition, yet to my dismay was the topic of conversation throughout the groups which gathered. Do not, however, be fooled by my apparent contempt for those around me. I too was roused by the principal’s announcement and intended to make a mark on the school in my final week. For years I had been what one would consider to be a model of student conformity, arriving each morning without failure, completing my work without question and then buggering off at the end of the day without anyone knowing my name; a perfect “cog in the machine” to use the words of my cliqued peers.
I pulled down the sleeves of my army green jacket as I walked out of the front door of my high school. I was so glad to be done with this week and be able to go home and relax. I have never had anything that stressed me out more than school. It was only getting close to the end of first semester, and I had already lost all motivation. My teachers sucked.

Since I was a little girl I would always hear my parent telling my older sibling how important it was to graduate high school and go to college. Now that I am grown, I understand why my parents would tell them and me to get a degree. My parents had poor education none of my parents finished high school, because in Mexico the highest free level of school was six grade and after that the parents had to paid more expensive tuition. Like it mentions in chapter 16 about how important is for parents to give advise, listen, and encourage their children. My parents remind me how they were not able to do or have what we have now when they were my
In 1925 without telling the head of the school board, Mr. Jordan Ida Bidson, a fourteen year old takes over her teacher’s job secretly after the teacher left when an emergency popped up with her mother. Ida and her fellow classmates continued on with their studies hoping not to repeat everything that they learned this year.

Practice: I decided to go to my field site for the first time on a Wednesday. I met one of my friends at her dorm around 3:30 so that I could walk with her to the fields. This was a bad idea on my part. She said we were running late and that we had to run there, however I haven’t exercised since my freshman year in high school. When we got to the field there was nobody in sight.
They go in and one of the rebels attacks Marla so birdy puts him down and they take the children inside. The unit has more combat and more struggles with the Iraqi people. Birdy continued to write letters to his father but he didn’t respond. He wrote to his uncle Richie instead. They talked about how gruesome and mind boggling war was.
At 5:45 AM the alarm on my phone blared some generic default tone that I had never gotten around to changing. This was probably the earliest I’ve ever gotten up in my entire life. I groggily removed myself from the pile of blankets on the floor that I had been sleeping in and headed for the shower, brushed my teeth, washed my face and searched my near empty closet for something to wear on my first day of school. Although I was absolutely exhausted and there was yet to be any furniture in my room, I was thrilled to be transferring to Pattonville High School in midst of my junior year and living in a bigger house in a better community.
I found a file about society and as soon as I opened it the sergeant walked back in and as soon as he saw me with the file he pulled the alarm, so I shoved him to the ground and bolted out the door everyone ran out of their cabins. I hurried and stepped into a suit then hit the lever to start the elevator. I then ran and got in a jet that could turn invisible Joey was yelling, “what are you doing!” I didn’t say a word I just flew out as fast as I could and I knew exactly where I was going, to the city and show people that war is actually going on and they 're not safe and they should be aware that war is getting out of control. Dear journal, It’s October 1st and I have been flying for several hours and I 'm starting to think I am in the Nevada desert and I’m trying to get to D.C. and tell the whole world. I don’t know how i 'm going to do this but I know I need to get to the white house.
My Grandmother made sure to wake me up every morning to haul me of to school where I would meet my loving, devoted teachers and coaches. With their help I left John Edgar Howard elementary school with a strong head on my shoulders, and the devotion to strive for more. I had to move to a different elementary school because John Edgar Howard Elementary ended up being closed, because of the rough neighborhood. I then, attended Bradbury Heights; a school that I didn’t know existed. I was never exposed to many different neighborhoods, or opportunities.
