My ninth grade was pretty cool until the last week of school I let my mouth get the best of me and said some things that I really should’ve not said and because I did I earned the next semester at the alternative school. When school started back I was very sad because I had to go to the “bad” school with all the “bad” kids and I was very nervous. Once I got there it was pretty cool and I really enjoyed it because the classes were smaller and you got more one on one help. My grades went up and my mom decided that I should spend the rest of the year there, which really messed me up because they did not offer any elective classes only the basics . My eleventh grade year was also a disaster because of the struggle of passing my biology state test and I was really distracted and just wanted to go back to the alternative school but my mom and the principle would not send me back.
I did horrible my freshman year but my mom still managed to discipline me enough after seeing my report card that I went from a 1.8 to a 3.0 student by the end of the year. She did this by enforcing strict discipline. I wasn't allowed to go out and I had to stay home everyday to work on my homework. Society hasn't shaped me, the community I lived in hasn't shaped me, what really made me what I am today is my mom. She shaped me to become what I am today, even though it took many years to make me into what she wanted me to be, she's the one who gave me my mindset to try my best and to always know there's room for
Fuad Manuel Asfura Giraldez English 8-3 October 17, 2008 Everyone Bullies Melinda Sordino Last year a boy from the Everest school was kicked out for bullying at school, and was not accepted in some other school. This is why bullying is bad. Melinda, the main character of the novel Speak does not bully, but she is being bullied, and it practically ruins her life. Since the first day of school Melinda has been bullied by her ex-friends and other particular people. Therefore Melinda is still being bullied throughout all the ninth grade.
I also have a little sister born August of 2007 to my mom and her new husband since 2006 named Angelique Catherine LeBouef. I started my educational journey at Daspit Elementary and now I am a senior at Westgate High School. I am doing this paper for Mr. Bernard’s Western Civilizations class. I was born and raised here as a Cajun boy. I have lived most of my life at 628 Colleen Street in New Iberia.
This means that since everyone was hitting and picking on her she didn’t give up. She actually uses the bullies’ offense as her defense. Its quite unique because this is something you don’t see everyday but her grandmother told her to thank the people who called her names.Its a brilliant idea by her grandmother, yes indeed these words were hurtful, but Melba was clever enough not to show it. Doing this will confuse the bullies to thinking that she doesn’t care what they said or thought of her. I chose this book because i actually read this book long ago when I was younger and I decided to expand on my little prior knowledge of this book “Warriors Don’t Cry”.
Capitan Mark Kelly Ever since I was a young girl I have always had great dreams and high expectations for myself. Anytime I was asked, “What do you want to be when you grow up?” I would quickly reply” a lawyer” As the years went by I still had that goal in mind, but I began to realize that I was not exactly Ivy League material. Though I did work really hard in my classes, I was still at best average. During my junior year I took my SAT’s, and cried when I got my scores back. For many years I was scared to go to college because I thought I wasn’t college material.

Gatto says that school diminishes creativity; if anything kids discover their hidden creativeness in class while at school. He also says that kids are not able to advance in higher learning. When clearly, kids are able to follow the teacher and be able to get A's while the subjects get more extreme. Gatto says, "teachers tend to blame the kids, as you might expect"(pg. 683) from personal experiences I can say that I have had great relationships with my teachers throughout elementary school and especially High school.
I also spent half of a year at Wesleyan College, in Owensboro, Kentucky and had to leave to give birth to my son. I now have 2 wonderful children. A son that is almost 9 years old, and a daughter that is 2 years old. They mean the world to me and I love them with all my heart!! My children are the reason that I am now going to finish school.
My Least Favorite Teacher I'm going to tell you about my least favorite teacher of all time, Mrs. Griggs, Mrs. Griggs was my ninth grade biology teacher while I attended a ninth grade center. On the first day of class as I entered the class room she made a comment about me saying "Oh look I have another good for nothing jock again this year, get on in your seat." regardless of my attendance along with being on time she always had similar comments to say to me and two other students in the class. I always waited until the end of class to tell her how I didn't like the way she acted toward me without any motive. The next thought that came to mind was to tell another teacher that I trusted what it was that Mrs. Griggs was doing.
