Where My Trust Should Lie
There was always a girl in my class that a lot of rumors evolved around. Some were good rumors, but most of them were bad rumors. In 4th grade, a lot of those rumors started to grow and become more known, but I didn’t really believe them. I liked to think that she was a good person, someone that I might want to have been friends with. But in writing class one day, my hopes were proven wrong, and I realized that this girl was never someone I wanted to be friends with. That she was just someone who walked all over me. On the last week of school, in our writing class we were all excited for sharing our stories. Well, at least most of us were. It was a choice, and me being the shy person I was, I didn’t want to.

It was at that moment that I knew I messed up with trusting her. I had heard stories about her not being a nice person, but I guess I just never believed them, until now. Now I had to find a way to get her to stop doing what I knew she was going to do. I was really shy in 4th grade, and the shy version of myself didn’t know what to do. “What are you doing?” I asked her.
“I’m going to read your story,” she told me with a smile, a smile that didn’t seem that genuine anymore. The smile seemed more like a show than anything. The smile would seem nice to someone glanceing at us, but to me, it sent chills down my spine.
“Why? I don’t want you to, read your own,” I begged, but she wasn’t budging.
She replied with, “Because the other stories on this document aren’t as good as yours, and I need to share something.” Not having anything left to say, she went to carpet and I followed.
“Please don’t share,” I begged her again, while we were waiting for every kid to be settled.
“No. I’m going to share it, and you can’t stop me,” she

    Eventually I found out and was told by my English teacher that it may have been a mistake that I was even put in a writing support class. But being told that didn’t help how I felt it only discouraged me more since I had tried for weeks to explain to my school that it was a mistake. After having my work constantly criticized and mocked I started hating any criticism that teachers would give me on my work as I could never tell whether they were trying to help or just insulting it. Being in that class for months made me despises middle school since it started with an annoying experience. I still worked hard during middle school in fear that I would be put into the same writing support class.…

    I wasn’t looking forward to the coming year. Little did I know at the time, she was going to make my life just as miserable, maybe even worse. To the majority of her other students, they accepted that they weren’t skilled writers and they moved on, but not me. No,…

    I had an opinion on her being exposed to too much propaganda coming from the society, which I had expressed to her a couple of times, but unfortunately, she usually brushed it off. She still believed everything. She believed that women weren’t good enough, smart enough, cool enough, and every time I would tell her that they in fact were, she kept silent. We didn’t argue a whole lot; every now and then there would be an argument that was, of course, caused by me, when she would doubt herself or not want to play tag with me because “girls are supposed to be calm and careful”, but I was understanding. And so was she.…

    For me I had various positive and negative literacy sponsors. Most impacting in my early childhood, teachers and my parents pushed me year after year to master reading and writing. Some of these literacy sponsors were never wavering in their positivity, and these sponsors were the ones that overcame the negative views I possessed at the time. My original negative outlook on literacy did not come about on accident Early on in my childhood I did not enjoy either reading or writing due my second grade teacher who believed that I was, to put it blatantly, stupid. While in her class, she openly told me that I was not smart enough to be in second grade and it would be a miracle if I got into the third grade.…

She had done a lot of research, and came up with a sentence that she thought was her own. In reality, it was something she had read earlier and forgotten about. She was almost kicked out, but saved by a professor who knew that she would never break character like that.
