So I spent basically a year and a half with very few friends. I moved to a new school half way through sixth grade. I didn’t ever find a real place there. I met my best friend Stacey when I first moved to my new middle school. We stayed friends throughout middle school, but she had a lot of family problems and she ended dup moving away and I didn’t even know she was leaving until after she was gone.
Since the beginning, I have gone to the same school as Leslie, and almost every year I got stuck with a teacher that she had had the previous year. Being only eleven months younger than my sibling made the memory of Leslie, being the bright student that she is, easier for my teachers to recall. Every September for eleven years I was greeted by all of my teachers with the same "Oh you're Leslie's little brother." This was really no big deal. The following year, my fifth grade teacher said to me, "Oh you're Leslie's little brother?"
I tried to have conversation outside of school with my classmates. It was to no avail as they were also new to the language and did not show that much of an interest in it. As a result I was subjected to insults such as “You want to be white boy.” I never gave up and did my best to excel in my English. As time went by, my grades in English class finally started showing
The WBB - Dominic’s Perspective I am going to start from the very beginning, it was back in elementary school so it’s a little fuzzy. But in this time, I met some of the most influential people in my life, Carlos and Simon. Fast forward about two years into 7th grade. I ended up losing connection with Carlos but Simon and I stayed as buddies. Since I came to school a week late, I didn’t really have any friends in my classes so I had to improvise.
I barely knew any English so in first grade It was harder for me to speak to my classmates. Things were hard in the beginning but after a while they did get better. I can’t complain too much about always moving because I was meeting new people and I do still speak to most of the people I have
My Educational experience this far in my life could possibly be described as a rollercoaster. When I was younger I missed a lot of days of school, I ended up being a year behind academically. I’ve been to ten different schools all together, in five different cities. From kindergarten to second grade I went to school in Visalia, in third grade I went to school in Hanford for a semester then went to Lindsay and stayed in the same school for fourth grade also. For fifth and sixth grade I got homeschooled which really helped me because I caught up academically to where I should be, but it was hard work, I did two years of school in one year.
Everyone has a childhood best friend, while I have not seen mine in about four years. I have known Jessica Turner since elementary school. Even though we went to different middle schools we still kept in touch by texting or even social media. When I was in high school my sophomore year I was walking to my mom’s work which is by the elementary school I used to go to. For some odd reason I walked in and that is when I saw her, my childhood friend Jessica sitting on a bench.
A long time has passed since the days of school, since the scholarship they gave me that I never actually spent. A long gone is the offer of place into a Nursing degree; I’ve forgotten what grades I got and probably the login passwords to find them out as well. But those defining high school moments that rewrote my earliest schooling experiences, have never left me. I would like to say I figured it out on my own, but that’s not true. Before I was diagnosed, no one knew what to do with me; it was the smallest
They do not mind I bother them and use their time to help me. Professor Cochran is nice and kind person, because my English is bad, something he said to the class is not making sense to me, I have to ask him after class. He also helps me much with my essay, and every time I send email to him, he will answer me really fast. This class is awesome, I love this class. I hope in the future every class I take could teach me a lot like this class.
