I remember saying no I wouldn’t read them, I would just go to my room and sit there and do nothing. One day my teacher decided to contact my mom and inform her that I wouldn’t read in class and that I wasn’t achieving my AR goal and that night I remember my mom sitting with me making me read to her for 25 min straight. As I started to get older I realized that I also hated writing so much with such a passion. As I started getting older, I got into Middle School year I realized that all the English teachers would make us write essays. I would have such a hard time starting my essay 's.

First off I’d like to be completely honest and say that I wasn’t looking forward to this performance whatsoever.

I arrived to the Creative Arts Center around 7:30, walked inside and went to the box office and purchased my ticket. The girl working behind the counter told me that my total was twenty-two dollars and I about choked but I paid it and headed towards my seat. As I sat down I thought to myself, “Oh boy here’s to wasting three hours of my life and twenty-two dollars.” I look around and see a decently full auditorium and wonder why there are so many nonrequired students at something like this.

The structure of the short story adds to this theme because the reader gets suspicious of the tense relationship between daughter and father.

1 Lessons from the classroom. Essay #3: Lessons from the Classroom. It has been a long rough month for me, but oh well such is life. Throughout this month I have had to relearn to do many things I thought I would never have to do again like public speaking, even though I feel comfortable speaking to crowds and groups, teaching a crowd or group of people is a whole other animal by itself.
