Mrs. Benavides, my eighth grade language arts teacher, assigned our class to read The Outsiders, and I coursed I was complained in my head, I don’t want to read (actually pretend to read and then use Sparknotes) another lame book. The first day we got the book we were all told to read chapters 1 through 3, and this time all of the kids in my class complained and I wasn’t the only one.

I have dedicated a lot of time, work and effort to maintain my 3.8 GPA. Unfortunately, my Senior year was not how I pictured

Wow! I cannot believe that a semester just flew by. I still remember how scared and timid I was when I first started and how nervous I was when I spoke to a student as a counselor.
