At the beginning of this semester, I was starting my senior year in highschool and my mother wanted me to take English Composition 1 as a dual credit class. I was very nervous and did not want to take this class. I have never been a very good writer, and I have never liked to write, especially not essays.

Although I dreaded this class, it was not too bad. I actually discovered that I had a couple strengths in writing. However, I had weaknesses too, but my wonderful teacher Mrs. Garth was there to help me through them. Looking back, I am glad I took this class in high school with Mrs Garth instead of waiting until I got to college. Now, I am dreading Composition 2 next
