Personal Narrative: My First Day In Public School

Improved Essays
She had been to the school countless times with her dad before today because she loved to attend the sports events, but today was different. Today was her first day of school, a public school that is. Her alarm went off but she was already wide awake, staring at the clock she felt her stomach start to twist uncomfortably. As she began to get ready all she could think about was what the other kids would think of her. Would they accept her? Would they ignore her? Would they talk to her?

She was shy but only until Emily had gotten to know her soon
