Narrative Essay About Moving School

Last year in January my mother and I decided it would be in my best interest to switch schools. It was hard to get to my old school and I didn’t understand the classes and I didn’t get along with the other kids. Also it was the first year I had ever had homework and it was hard for me because I wasn't used to it and they gave us a lot of homework (more than we get here). So my mom took me out of Lewis And Clark Montessori Charter School and I ended up here, at Marysville.
This was important to me because I was leaving who and what I grew up with and I was incredibly scared for what was to come.

During last years christmas break my mom and I started talking about me switching schools. I wasn’t getting good grades and i was scared I wasn’t

So I decided to leave Lewis And Clark and try to find a school that I could fit into.

My mom pulled me out and we went to my old school one day at the end of the day to go say goodbye to everyone. About a week after leaving school my mom and I started to think about where I was going to go to school, and while I was pretty adamant about doing online school my mom wouldn’t let me and told me that we were going to go to check out the schools in our area.
The first school I went to check out was Lane. As soon as I walked in I knew i didnt like it there. The woman in the front office was rude and everyone was staring at me like i was a freak. I also didnt like the sound of going to school with like six hundred other students. So as soon as I got back in the car with my mom I told her that I would not be going there.
The second school i checked out was Marysville. My mom set up an appointment with the school counselor at the end of the school day. She was incredibly nice and showed me around the school so I could see where everything

    Then she said “BYE!” Then I left for a couple of weeks, I only stayed at my aunt 's house for two weeks and went to school once a week. The reason I went to my aunt’s house was because my mom gave me an ultimatum so I left. It got boring after a while so I moved back home and went to school every day since I knew I couldn 't live with the…

    So now I regret not listening to my mother because once college starts I feel like I’m going to fail all my writing assignments. My mother would give me the lecture about college and work and I did not take it serious enough. In the end of my junior year I failed a couple of classes that had made me repeat the grade, however the high school that I was in does not have the NYS regents’ exams. This goes back to me being lazy on my writing, I failed 3 courses because I wanted to fall back on my work. I transferred high schools and started going to tutoring for my writing and vocabulary.…

    The next day my mother brought me an application of a school which was a block away from my house. She walked into my room and said “We are going to apply to BHS just as a safety school if you don’t get into your old school”, I took the paper from her and tore it into pieces and said “I am not going to any other school unless my old school.” She knew that I would do something like that because I had all my friends there, some of them were with me since kindergarten so I was emotionally attached to that school so she had another copy of the application. Few weeks later, she came home with a bag filled with my favorite…

    Once I felt the better I told my mom I was ready to go back to school and she told me that I would be attending an online schooled by the name of K12. When she told me that I got the chills. In my mind I thought “I can’t do online school I’m not even good with computers,” and “ What if I never see my friends again?” I tried to explain to my mother that I felt better and I can go back to school with no problems. She insisted that I give it at least one year and decide from there which school I liked better. The first three weeks I was skeptic of the school and still felt that public school was better.…

    I didn’t even know why at the time. All I knew was that even though I loved learning I did not want to go into the school building. I would try as hard as I could but couldn’t make it into the building. After a few weeks of me refusing to go to school, my mom finally realized I was anxious all the time, especially when my high school was mentioned. That started my long road into trying to become a “normal person” again.…

    My Worst Education Experience “¿Itzel, Ya estas lista para la escuela?” this was the dreading question my mother would ask me every morning before going to school. I was a bilingual student in the second grade and I was struggling so much academically, which in the long run caused me to have internal struggles. I dreaded going to school every morning and having to put up with 8 hours of feeling like I was born stupid. My teacher, principal, and vice-principal did not have very good faith I was going to be successful and it was the worst feeling in the world that I was forced to be in a environment that I knew I was not brightly looked at. Specifically, in the school I was attending at the time, the bilingual class was looked at very poorly…

    She told me “if you don’t get a degree in a S.T.E.M program you will end up with no job and a load of college debt.” Maybe it was just because I was still a naïve high school student, but I always thought that by becoming a teacher I was part of every program since I taught students the basics needed to learn science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. I am not sure what my guidance counselor was trying to accomplish during that meeting, but as I left her office, I was only more determined to become a teacher. Obviously there were a few ideas I knew that apparently my…

    Needless to say that, while I was excited, I was a little scared of Kindergarten. My teacher, Mrs. Jarman, definitely had her hands full with my class, we were a rowdy bunch. I don’t remember much of kindergarten, but I remember the first day of school. We technically lived outside the school district, and mom didn’t want me to go to Marion City schools, so I was open enrolled to River Valley, and every morning, Mom would take me to school. Usually, she couldn’t pick me up, so my grandma usually did.…

    The reason being is they are just taking everything one day at a time and feel that they will deal with that challenge when it becomes more relevant. They do know however, that they will not be sending Emily to the same high school as her oldest sister Madison went to. When we were talking about transitions for Emily I was thinking about the information I was learning in my class specifically for transitioning. In that class we learned that the earlier you start, the smoother the transition from post-secondary to adult life will go. Our text suggests that “Despite requirements for transition planning, many parents continue to report that there is a lack of planning, information, and collaboration in planning for their child’s future” (Turnbull, 2015, p. 101).…
