Rose and his family were unware of the scores being switched, and they didn’t realize what this meant for Rose and his future. The school should have taken action on this problem by switching the scores back and placing the two children in the programs they tested into originally. This connects to Rose’s main idea by showing that the children were overlooked, and that the school was not prepared for this situation to
The Glass Menagerie connection (stage 1 – withdrawal from reality/social alienation/ fear/isolation) Tennessee Williams (Childhood) • Williams often skipped school, did poorly on tests, and was bullied • “He endured the teasing not only from the other children there, but from teachers as well. They mocked him for being the newcomer, for his Southern accent, for his diminutive stature, and for his reluctance to play the rough-and –tumble games expected of boys. “I can remember gangs of kids following me home yelling ‘Sissy!’ – and home was not a very pleasant refuge. If I had been born to this situation, I might not have resented it so deeply. But it was forced upon my consciousness at the most sensitive age of childhood” (Bloom 17).

During my Junior Year of high school, I fell into an immense state of depression and was diagnosed with anxiety and attention deficit disorder. Anxiety destroyed my confidence and morphed minor problems into mountains that I dared not climb. My inability to focus and lack of energy further enlarged my issues, and impaired my belief that I could overcome this challenging time. Being a first generation Latina, stigma revolving mental health in our community made it difficult for my parents to understand how depression and anxiety impairs one 's ability to function. Because I refused to seek help, I lost all resilience and motivation to strive forward, and as a result, my grades and relationships suffered tremendously.
As a child, I was always told to dream big by my mother, father, and many others. Nonetheless, living with my mother, stepfather, and siblings in San Jose, there was constantly fighting, moving around, and fear from within, as well as the outside world. I always struggled in school but didn’t think much of it, considering both parents and older siblings were high school dropouts but weren’t in disastrous situations. Towards the end of elementary school, I refused to go to school because of my social phobia, as well as the fact that I would be bullied because of my speech impediment. Near the end of my seventh grade, I went to Modesto with my dad every weekend and found the different environment to be very calming, thus when the time came for him to bring me back home, I would cry in the car and beg to be taken back to Modesto.
In middle school I never had good grades I was always the student who did not understand the lesson. During this time I would get so frustrated i would just give up and not even try. From the beginning of 6th grade to the end of 7th I pretty much had all F’s maybe some B’s in my easy classes. My parents were very disappointed in me and i was disappointed in myself. After 7th grade i decided i was gonna switch gears and start really putting my right foot forward and start paying attentions in school and ask for help when I need it.
When I was very young, my peers were more understanding; all young children can be awkward or shy, it seemed. But the older I got, the harder social interactions became. In middle school and early into high school, I missed more school due to the anxiety attacks that came from my failed social interactions than I did from illness. As someone who is sick often, this was unacceptable to me. Autistic people often obsess over the things that interest them, called “special interests.” Body language became one of these special interests for me in high school as a result of the tedious research I began to get out of this feeling that I was alone in a world where everyone knew a secret I could not find out.
Struggling to make things go straight was not easy for me as I had no friend to guide me through the town and to school. Being new in the city came with negative things such as boredom at school, and as such, I remained silent most of the times when there were no lectures. I remember I was mocked by one of the students in our class and this lowered my self-esteem since I did not understand why she looked at me and started laughing. This moment seemed to be the most harmful experience of my life since I dislike people who mock me. I have had positive experiences in life, but the most impactful in my life is when I started working as a nursing assistant and home health aide in a health care facility.

At that time growing up my family did not have much money so we could not afford nice things in particular new clothes.
