    best times of my life. While living in Texas I really enjoyed going to a school that didn’t require uniform like they would in Louisiana. Eventually we returned home, and because I did not find life in Louisiana as interesting as Texas I cried for about four months. To make matters worse, I was out of school for 3 months before finally getting enrolled in a school that I didn’t know existed. I wasn’t able to go to school because I lived with my grandmother whom did not have legal guardianship of me. The fact that my mom is incarcerated and refused to sign over guardianship to anyone caused a major dilemma in life, not just school. Not having an active father in my life made the process much more difficult for me. If I had at least one of my parents available I would have been in school. After all of that madness I ended up starting school in the spring time.

I guess everything happens for a reason. As I got older I eventually readjusted to life in New Orleans again. Breezing through middle school, and graduating in 2011, I decided to challenge myself and joined the honors program at John Ehret High School. Though the work was tough, the fruits of my labor begin to ripen.…

    My first years going to an American school were very challenging because I didn’t know how to speak English. Everything else was different too; the school, the classrooms, the students, the rules, the food, just everything. It was a totally new culture I had to adapt to in order to fit in with the rest. Diana Drake emphasizes, “If an Anglo teacher is unaware that children growing up in different cultures may learn different values and may learn to attach different meanings to particular…
