I was a very timid child in middle school. I had friends and people to associate with, but I was not very out going or overly talkative. I had a hard time talking to people I didn't know, and people like Robert intimidated me. This is why when I was assigned to be his math partner I was quite scared. In the first week of school Mrs. Miller assigned everyone in the class a math partner, someone who we would spend the semester working on in-class assignments.
This was due to the fact that in his school studies he felt like he was having trouble in school because of his speech difficulty. In addition to his releases, he had come across two objects that would change his life forever: a compass and a book of geometry. Geometry made Albert want to go to school everyday, it made him like school. (Hammontree, Marie) Even though Albert was never really “dumb”, it wasn't until Max Talmud, Albert's unofficial tutor, came alo... ... middle of paper ... ...I have done my share, it is time to go.
I was introduced to kids from more schools, new clubs and organizations, and more school subjects. For the first time in awhile, I felt that I had seen a side to life I had never seen before. I wanted to get involved with the organizations at my school but school was far away from my house and it required me to stay longer hours, and my mom to drive me everywhere I needed to go, so she highly discouraged me from joining any clubs in my school. At church it was time for me to do my confirmation, I started attending church regularly and talked to all those bullies in middle school, who are now my friends. My sophomore year we changed buildings, to a building with less traffic and closer to my
Also, he would speak to children about God, and even some adults occasionally. The seminary school that Bosco entered was Chieri at the age of 16. Father Cafasso helped John through seminary school because he could not afford it, neither could his mother help him pay for it. John became a priest in 1841 at the age of 26, and was named Don Bosco, which means Father Bosco. After Sunday Mass's he would have a catechism class which would teach young people about God.
In the beginning of his sophomore year, the knee problems came back, and with a vengeance. He had to leave school again after the first quarter. It was saddening to have to miss him again. But some of my fondest memories of this year were when three of us stormed his house as a trio and dragged him out to take him to movies, parties, etc. The feeling of completion that he brings to our circle really reinforces my feelings that we're all the best of friends.
I remember the teacher calling my parents one day to set up a conference about what strategies they could use at school and home to help me grasp the contents of both reading and writing. At that point I was then diagnosed with a learning disability in both reading and writing as well as mathematics. At the end of my first grade year the teacher and principal advised my parent to hold me back into the first grade or otherwise I would fail the second grade due to lack of reading and writing skills, So like most caring parents would do, mine chose to hold me back to see if I would improve on reading as well as writing. It was extremely hard for me because at this age I was being made fun of for not being like the other students. My second year in the first grade began, my new teacher had set me up with a resource
“You know we are suppose to be in English class right now”, said the guy with the blond hair name Sunil. He was one of the boys who like to stay out of troubles because of his cruel parents who spank him for every little mistake he makes. “Hey! Don’t be an infant”, I said, as he stood up and started walking towards the hallway. I was confused and scared because if Sunil walks into the class we then have to go too and this is what we didn’t wanted to do because we were already late and 10 minutes of class was gone.
But then I walked into class, and the nerves suddenly hit me so hard that I felt physically ill. I managed to postpone my speech until the next class, which was a massive mistake: by the next class, I had forgotten part of my

I know from experience school can be a extremely threatening thing. High school for me was not easy. I remember walking down the halls and getting tripped and stepped on, sitting in class having paper thrown in my hair, and walking in the lunch room to someone standing up and screaming “Here comes Kansas” since I was flat chested. There were many days I feared coming to school because the bulling was so bad.
The Importance of Change “If you don’t complete your assignments, we will have no other choice, but to put you in public school” was a typical threat in the Settle household. When my oldest brother, Jacob, would come home from kindergarten, He was always frustrated and distressed. My parents talked to his teachers and discussed the possibility that he may have a learning disability. Later on, Jacob was diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome. At the time, the school system was more concerned with helping and praising those who did well in school, rather than taking the time and effort to help those that were really struggling.
