In our society education is very important it 's very valuable and it can shape how we approach our lives in this so called “real world”. The elementary school I attended was named Crestview Elementary it was closed down about four years ago and turned into an adult school. When I was enrolled there it was a ten minute walk from my home, just right up the street. I lived in a lower-middle income neighborhood but other students at that school came from wealthier middle income neighborhoods. The school always had fundraisers, events, and special programs going on after, before, and during school, but the only program I was ever in was Speech. My reading speed and comprehension was low. My math was average at best and I had a speech problem where I couldn 't pronounce my r’s. I never scored high enough on test to get into the GATE program, but after two years I finally made it out of Speech. My time in elementary …show more content…
I was put in ELD (English Language Development) classes as opposed to a regular English class. After less than a year in ELD I was moved to a regular English class and I was in an average math class. My second year of middle school I was wrongly recommended for honors English and math; needless to say I could not handle the workload. The classes were too advanced for me. After that I was in my last year of middle school where I was put in a regular English class, but once again I was falsely recommended for an advanced math class. I was placed in Algebra 1 and struggled the entire year. The best I could ever do was a D; enough to graduate from middle school. I don 't feel as if I was tracked just average. Needless to say middle school academically was a terrible time in my

    I received a "D" for the paper. When I received my essay back all I could think is "Should I even be in this class?" My English 101 class was easy. The class felt like it was more for a high school student, rather than a college student. I knew that although I received an "A" in English 101 I did not learn all the content that I should have learned in that class, and it was verified in the first week of the class.…

    What confirmed it was the fact that I was the only freshman in the class. I felt discouraged because I believed that I wasn’t smart enough and I was more discouraged when I failed that year and was doomed to take the class again, much like how most of the students in “Student Fear Factor” felt. During that time, as everyone was put in Algebra II, I wanted to catch up to everyone else. Thus I enrolled in Brigham Young University’s online course for Algebra II and I failed the course because I lost interest. Junior year, I took Geometry while everyone was in Pre-Calculus.…

    At the end of each term, second teacher required students to submit five pages of study paper. She did not have the interest in this class very much, and after spending almost one year as second teacher’s student, I did not have the interest in the English as well.

    I stopped reading all together, maybe picking a book up about once to twice a year if I could find something interesting. I got awful grades in my Language arts classes, and did not even care. I even got to a point where I would be getting in trouble in class, because my eyes would be wandering around the room, trying to find something to occupy my mind. And that was just middle school. As I entered high school, some things may have changed, but my care for English, was still pretty low.…
