Now that I am coming to the end of high school and to the beginning of my college education, it scares me to death. Going to school has been one of my biggest priorities and the most routine part of my life for the past thirteen years. I have many more years to get through, but the years that I spent in elementary school and junior high were the most memorable. I have learned so much since then, it has made me a different person today. I have so many memories from my earlier years in school. I especially remember how much easier it was back then and how much harder it is becoming now as I get older.
I started off by going to Peppermint Patty preschool in I do not remember much of preschool because I was very young, but I do remember never wanting to go. I always got sick when I went there and the teachers were very old. From what I can remember, I did not enjoy preschool very much. When I entered Kindergarten, I was ecstatic. I went to here is a Catholic school and has grades from Kindergarten through eighth grade. My Kindergarten teacher was Ms. Esser. She was a very nice lady. I loved school when I was little and Kindergarten was just awesome because it seemed like all we did is play. I always remember that I wanted it to be harder. I wanted to have homework and take hard tests just so I could tell all of my friends that I had homework. The one thing I did not like about Kindergarten was when we had nap time. I remember we would have these little blue mats we would lay on. We got to pick out a book and have a carton of milk also. Taking a nap was not the grown up thing to do so I never liked it. Which of course has all changed because I love to come home and sleep after school. I also remember the igloo that our class made out of milk cartons. I thought that was just the coolest thing. Overall, I think that Kindergarten was a great way to start my education.
After Kindergarten, I was all ready for first grade. I was so excited because I knew I was going to get some kind of homework. This has also changed too because what teenager wants to come home and do homework. That is what I miss most about those years, it was all so easy. My teacher in first grade was Mrs. Lutgen.

... middle of paper ... to see my best friends in school. I met a lot more people at Petty and I felt like I had more privileges. The school work or course became harder, but I still loved school. I had my first real crush on a boy which was exciting at that age. Fifth grade was a lot of fun but junior high was coming up and that was even more exciting.
Junior high was a whole new world when I got there. There were so many kids and so many classrooms. I did not know what to think. I remember the coolest thing about junior high was having passing periods. I loved talking to all my friends and going to different classes. It was a lot more freedom. The most memories I have from junior high are teen canteen. It was the coolest thing known to a teenager at the time. It was a dance every other Friday and we would get ready for hours. Again, the work became harder but I still liked coming to school more than ever. My school days are filled with great experiences and many memories. It is fun to look back and see how much I have grown as a person and how far I have come. When I look at the past I smile because I had a lot of fun and I know that I have many more memories to come!
