Personal Narrative: My AP Language Classroom

Improved Essays
When I get to my AP Language class I look around the classroom that has a homey feel to it. Curtains drape over the cold foggy windows in royal red, rimmed with gold shimmering colors. A lamp is turned on, creating a soft glow in the room while the warm smell of pumpkin pie is enough to make it hell for a sleep deprived person to stay awake.

I walk to the back of the classroom, and sit exactly in the middle. Then I put my head down, and wait for class to start. While waiting for time to go by, I almost drift to sleep until a person sits next to me. They shift in their seat towards my direction and I hear them jump in their chair.

"Oh hey, your new," A girl wiggles in her seat from excitement. I lift my head up to see her gray eyes become perfect circles. "And cute." She says and bites her lip while twirling a piece of hair. My eyebrows raise and I fumble with

"Rei?" Cassie calls me back and I act as if nothing happened. "Uh sorry, I was spacing out. I left because I wanted a change of scenery." I lie, and smile to clear her suspicions.

And she felt for it, saying "Seaside is a pretty school I guess."

Seaside really is a pretty school. Forest trees cradles the back of the campus while the ocean roars to the right of it. The architectures probably planned to put up a lot of windows because the scenery around the school is enchanting. It 's a lot better than Hammer Head High which is surrounded by tall looming city buildings.

Before Cassie can ask me anymore questions, the teacher of the classroom walks in with a big bag, and all the guys stop talking to admire the teacher 's curves with her golden hair spilling over her shoulders "Hi, class. Sorry that I am late. My cat snuggles was being a turd this morning, and wouldn 't come down from my tree in the backyard."

When she sets her bag down that contains some heavy books she walks up to the front of the classroom. She turns to the side and rolls her hair into a bun and sticks a pencil through

    “Spanglish” English such a complex language something spoken by many, and yet many others yearn to learn it. That was me a young and fragile girl who yearned to understand a foreign language, a language that other kids spoke. Although I was born in the United States I was not born speaking the native language – English. As early as I can remember, Spanish was what I spoke, heard, and understood.…

    I have never had experiences with online classes until this class. But from what I am seeing it is kind of a hard thing unless you have determination and discipline. I believe I do have this because I want to get an A in this class and start going in my major classes and get out in the working field again. I have been unemployed since April and would like to help my family out when I can.…

    When I was in elementary and middle school I didn't really have a subject preference. I was just okay at every subject and I couldn't find myself interested in anything particular. I didn't feel lost because I had plenty of time to decide what I wanted for myself that would make me happy. After a certain point in my life though, I have always had a preference for English, a preference that I didn't act on until recently.…

    I completed my ten-hour class observation at the private school Georgia Military Prep. The Georgia Military Prep School is located on Georgia Military College’s main campus in Milledgeville. At GMC prep I observed Ms. Jennifer Spencer's advanced eighth grade math class. Ms. Spencer has a decidedly pleasant air about her, a quick smile, and a brisk step that belies her ‘let us get the job done’ type attitude. On my first day observing her class, I soon gathered that Ms. Spencer always has a goal in mind when she sets foot in the classroom.…

    My classroom procedures are very clear, which the class has become familiar with over the semester. Students are to come in from their special class and grab their materials and go sit on the carpet and get ready for math to begin. These are expectations that should be memorized by now. Many of them do this and it contributes to the flow of the classroom and the engagement level of the entire groups. Students are expected to pay attention to the speaker during the mini-lesson by facing their way and not playing with any other items.…

    I remember when I was 5, the first time I went to a building daily for 8 hours. I sat down on the cold blue chair. In front of me was a bin of crayons, all the colors of the rainbow: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and purple. I remember sitting in the cold room and having the freedom to draw marks on my blank sheet of paper. The dye scratching against the table, colors spreading across the canvas like the sun, rising in the early morning.…

    It was a cold, winter morning. The frigid air blew as I turned to pull the handle on the door to the main building of my small high school. After entering the doorway, I dragged my feet across the floor and trudged through the empty hallway. As I peeked through each of the door windows, I saw nothing but dark, empty classrooms. It was not until I looked up that I noticed one lit room at the end of the hall.…

    Since starting high school, my interest in classroom learning had dropped quite significantly. I felt like grades were just a game, and that I should be out in the world learning things I deemed "practical life skills." My senior year I was able to mentor in a classroom of fourth graders for one period, ever other day. I took the class thinking it would be an easy and fun way to spend an hour an a half.…

    The first thing I noticed when I walked into Jasmine Middle School was how big the eighth graders were. I knew that in middle school the sixth graders would be the babies, but it was still kind of a shock at how big eighth graders really were; well, at least I hoped the kids I was looking at were eighth graders. If the group of kids hanging out by the lockers were seventh graders, then eighth graders must be huge. Luckily, after looking around for a few seconds, I spotted my best friend, Georgina Larson by the water fountain. She’s never hard to find, because her hair is light blonde, and she’s always wearing really flashy outfits.…

    During my first years as a high school student, I usually procrastinate on my assignments because I couldn’t balance the workload between my most challenging classes, which was my Honors English class and my AP European class. As a result, I end up having to choose between them as to what assignment I have enough time to do. That school year was one of the hardest for me. I was able to stay on track and handle my workload by writing down everything I had to do. To-do lists were very helpful for me…

    Throughout the quarter my writing has strengthen. Last year I honestly had no idea how to write a decent paper. My English teacher was also trying to get her doctorate and she didn’t have the time to be an effective teacher. She tired her best but really shouldn’t have been our teacher. She had to step up because our original teacher flaked out on us, and I really admire her for that.…

    Mirabella POV “Turn that light off!” I scream at my little brother Mason, while covering my head with my pillow. “Mom says to get your butt out bed now or else she will come up here and kick it for you,” he screeches like the little banshee he is and runs out of the room. I groan in disgust and let myself fall out of bed onto the floor, my muscles not bothering to cooperate. But I digress and continue getting ready for the day.…
