English class made me feel empty-headed and lost. I never knew what was going on, and I also began not to care; However, when I was placed into Ms. Hightower 's class, everything changed!

My freshman class full of 15-year old 's were forced to read and write essays about the constitution and politics we knew and understood nothing about: It was the most tedious and doltish idea in the world.

After so long I lost all interest that I attempted to have and just waited in the prison, English class, until my sentence was up. When the state exam finally came it was nothing relevant to all that we had studied the entire year. From that point on I felt that English classes were a waste of time, and I was no good at them. When the results from the state test came, I received a score of 43% on the reading portion and the lowest possible score on the writing portion. I no longer felt that I was no good at English, I knew I was not. Luckily, I passed my 9th grade English class and was able to advance to English 2. It was the first day of my 10th grade year, and everyone was so happy with their teachers
