This fall semester of 2014 has been an interesting and learning experience for myself. I haven’t attend school in nearly a decade and was unsure of what to expect from my teachers and myself.

She is an energetic professor and I’m able to feel her passion for teaching and that motivate me to try my best in her class as the rest of my classes. I was driven to do the best of my ability and whatever the outcome might be, I know I did my best. The first graded essay that was assigned to us were to choose between two stories “Hills like White Elephant” by Ernest Hemingway and “The Story of an Hour” by Kate Chopin and interpret the story in our own…show more content…
I choose to do a research on “Sonny’s Blues” by James Baldwin even though the story was long in itself to me.
