Decent Essays
The first day of junior year, the day that almost everyone always dreads. One of the most dreadful things I had to do was having to restart my sleeping cycle just so I could wake up in time to make it to school and having to wear an attire that is not suitable for early mornings. Ironing my bright white dressy shirt as well as my khaki pants just to fulfill my schools dress code requirements. When I received my schedule over the summer, my friends and I all tried to get the same classes and surprisingly I could only get most of my class with my best friend Oscar. We both had extremely easy schedules besides English last period every other day. I’ve heard many stories that were associated with this teacher about how she could be boring and make people want to fall asleep. This class was one of the hardest classes that I have taken during my high school career till this point.

Although junior year with Ms. Keenan, in room 205, was one of the best educational experience I’ve had. English was and still isn’t my strong suit. On the first day of her class I decided to sit all the way in the back with my best friend and completely ignore everything else that was going on in the class. While introducing herself to the class and telling her story about her life, Oscar and I were having a conversation about fantasy football and who were going to draft in the weeks coming soon. Surprisingly she pulled out stacks of book and hands them out to us. Once I seen that the book was Macbeth, I became completely agitated that she gave us a book the first day. I automatically threw it in my bag and concluded that I wasn’t going to read it instead I was going to use spark notes. That was one of the worst decision I could have ever made in high

    Narrative paper: Paper #4 During my high school years I was a student who was very bright but was always lazy. Ever since my last two years of high school. I had gotten laid back and always looked for an easy way to get an assignment done. I, being an immature-last minute type of student, thought that I could get through my Senior year with bull-shitting assignments and asking friends for answers on quizzes and tests. But my way of accomplishing things soon caught up to me and taught me many lessons.…

    I am lucky to have such caring friends that help me study, accomplish good grades, and make smart decisions throughout high school. I remember a certain time with my friend Madison I was struggling to learn my honors history material for our exam the next day. I was so upset and frustrated and felt like I couldn’t learn any of it. She stayed up until three in the morning quizzing me multiple time until I got every single answer right. I ended up getting a 96 on the exam and was extremely thrilled.…

    Math had never been my strongest suit, but I usually did well. I had Mrs. Peterson’s math class third period, apparently she gets grouchy after lunch. So, I walk in, confident that I’ll do fine, and immediately I know I am wrong. Mrs. Peterson has been a math teacher for over twenty years, so she knows how to do her job. As per usual, the first week or two is easy, but by the end of the first month, she’d already made half the class cry.…

    I was not expecting much from my English class though, my previous English had been extremely hard and I was lucky to even pass with a B. My teacher was also known as the meanest teacher at Achbishop Chapelle High School and that her research paper assignment nearly failed a lot of people every year. I remember the day the research paper was assigned to us like it was yesterday. Our teacher had announced that we would have to write a research paper sometime soon. “This assignment will not be easy at all,” said Mrs. deJonge, “most of you will struggle to when it comes to writing something worthy of reading and the hardest part will be choosing your topic which is why I have decided to pick some topics myself and you guys will be able to pick from those.” I thought this was the end of my life.…

    I would pass all my classes with decent grades with no problems despite ignoring a lot of the work, but then I was called by my English teacher to stay after class. I was missing a lot of homework in his class and of course he wanted me to make it up. He warned me that if didn’t start doing more of my work I would fail his class. I didn’t really panic because the homework was really all I…

    A vast majority of high school students understand the concept of the importance of writing a paper to a specific audience but most don’t experience when a paper is read to the wrong audience. I experienced it first hand in my senior english class. It was my first paper of the year and I was writing it for a teacher that was very intimidating. Other students had told me that if you didn’t sit right, talk right, and have perfect grammar that she would tear me apart and fail me. Of course that all turned out to be a lie and she ended up being one of my favorite teachers from high school, but at that point I didn’t know that.…

    And finally started being focused in school and coming. Although I haven’t been to Peace River ever since 2 years ago, and I’m glad to say I am very passionate to say that I’m doing better. In school and even out of school I no longer have seen those girls that bullied me. The journey I went through was very stressful and hurting at a tough time because I really could focus in school or get anything done because, I would always have to watch my back and look over my shoulder to see if the girls was following me around school. Witch they was and I walked into the office and I pointed them out one by one because I couldn’t take it anymore.…

    Since moving to this new area really demoralized me I didn’t want to do anything in class but put my hood up and sleep. She inspired me and taught me that I could overcome my social obstacles that would also help me with my academics. Another teacher that really inspired me was my drafting class teacher Mr. Morales. At first I didn’t even know why I was in that class I never liked drafting and I just needed the credits. At first I would just skip all my classes and only show up to class about 2 days a week if that.…

    I had to go in everyday after school and do all of the make-up work and take all the tests that I had missed. I ended up passing all of my classes, (thank God!) but my grades were still not that great. My parents decided to put me in online school for the time being so I could work from home. We found that this was a much better fit for me anyway, considering I had always struggled with social anxiety and had a hard time focusing in…

    Today was terrible. Exams are coming soon and I have multiple tests this week as the first semester is coming to a close. Studying is one of my least favorite things to do, so I only study hard for my favorite subject, Math. There is no point in studying for English because Miss Narwin's lessons are awful and English essays are just opinions. Allison seems like a pretty cool girl.…
