With no doubts, multiple people face with events that have significant meanings for them and there are many experiences that bring drastic turnings on the long life road. For me, this turning was made when I was told that my government chose to study in the United State Of America instead of the United Kingdom where I previously applied to study. Though enough time has passed, I remember this day like it was just yesterday. The feeling of excitement because of the upcoming journey was mixing with uncertainty and fear. Realizing that I will be in the country where currently I have no relatives and friends was more than frightening for me.
She made us write an essay about a book call “ to kill a mockingbird”. When I finish reading the whole book I started doing my essay so I could turn it in the next day so she could grade it and give it back to me the following week. Monday came and we started class with a free write reflecting on how good we did on the essay. I wrote that I was confident that I was going to get a seventy on it. But when the teacher give it back to me I saw my grade and got surprises because it had a huge eighty nine percent with a circle around it and a smile face on top saying excellent job.
I was so nervous and afraid of failing that I will stop my exam for a few minutes to just focus again. When I got my final report card I discovered that I passed each final exam and I was so thrilled. The next year in 11th grade, I worked hard from the start and achieved really high grades and knew that if I wanted something I had to work hard for
The thought of wasting the last two weeks of my summer before ninth grade for band camp was a real bummer. Although I met some of the best people there and it truly changed my life, it did not seem the best waking up at seven o’clock every morning. Getting my schedule in the middle of band camp was not the best because I immediately wanted to go into the school and route my classes, but marching up and down a grassy field was stopping me. I remember getting sick to my stomach when I went home and looked at my schedule before the first time because it was just then hitting me that I was going to be a freshman at Sherando High School. Ninth grade was by far one of my best years.
This occurred all throughout elementary and middle school. I was even placed in honor classes, yet those classes still turned out to be quite easy for me. I had nothing less than an A, but that was all about to change once I got to high school. I had already missed the first four days of my freshman year, so I was already lagging behind. But the one class that I never seemed to stay afloat in was my Honors English 1 class.
Not long after I was born I was sent back to China where my grandparents raised me. My grandparents told me that I was sent back to China, is so that my parents can go to work, to raised me and my grandparents. In the time I was in China I had been through preschool and the first year of elementary school, and it was not long after that when my parents said I can come and live with them. Through the eight or nine years, I had only come to America
Thursday morning. I walked to my English teacher and handed her my short story. I was the first to turn it in. She labeled it with the number 1 in the lower left-hand corner. That afternoon, I was walking by and saw it stapled to the board with everyone else’s, but it stood out.
After I was out of school for around a month after my ACL surgery it was hard to catch up but It was not impossible. I didn 't try enough because I already thought my grade was too far gone and that rolled over into the next semester. After the school year I was very disappointed in myself. I never have failed a class in my life but here I was applying for summer school. So I redirected my disappointment and decided to excel at summer school.
As I walked into classroom 205 my English teacher greeted me and assigned me my desk. Mrs. Manuel was as loud as a freight train, but after she talked to our class I knew I was going to enjoy my English class this year. After brainstorming about my first day up to that point, the bell rang and I reported to Mrs. Kopieczek for Spanish. We reviewed some basic Spanish, but I knew this would be an easy class for me since I have already taken 2 years of Spanish. After 50 minutes of Spanish class I reported to Mr. Jennings for one of my favorite classes, world geography.
I had to lived months without her and next thing you know I adapted and convince myself they are doing this because the wanted the best for me. It been ten years since I have not seen Haiti. I miss the smell, the people, the ongoing language, the natural food and the atmosphere. This trip is very important because
When my dad told me that we were coming to the united states, I was excited but at the same time, I was mad that we were leaving some close family members behind. The people that I was mad about leaving behind were my grandfather, grandmother and my cousins. But I had to accept the fact that my education comes first and with better education comes a better life and that is all I want. Coming to America wasn 't hard at all financially because my dad was already here since he was a teen. So when, we came to America, we stayed with my uncle for about 3 weeks, then we moved to my aunt 's house for about a year.
Who is Jennifer Kirby? I graduated from Bowling Green State University of Ohio with a Bachelors of Science in Education. I began my teaching career in Lakewood, Washington initially teaching junior high math before the district converted our school to a middle school and I became one of the 6th grade Math and Science teachers. After two short military moves, I taught 6th grade Math and Social Studies in the Fort Bragg community. In Louisiana, I worked mornings as the intervention specialist for Reading and Math at the public middle elementary school (3rd and 4th) while teaching 7 and 8th grade Math in the afternoons at the local private school and eventually covering the art classes when the teacher was on maturity leave.
I thought I was going to make the team easily. After the tryout, a few days later the coaches sent a email out to all the parents showing who made the team and who didn’t. I read the list name by name, the farther down the list I went the more worried I got. Once I hit the last name I was devastated, I didn’t see
I am 16 and got it for a military camp I went to a year earlier. I’ve had it hard with MRSA I’ve done all I can to get out of this pattern, but it 's not easy to win this battle. I get it the worst on my thighs to the point it’s hard to walk and move. I wouldn’t wish this on anybody. Last year my sophomore year of high school I missed a round 88 days of school thanks to MRSA.
