Since my high school years have been done and over with for some time now I thought I might write about them here.
First I can recap #MyHighSchoolYearsInFiveWords in this statement.
“From G.A.T.E. (Gifted and Talented Education) to special ed.”
My freshman and sophomore year I was in at least one gifted class. Namely English I GATE in ninth grade and English II GATE and History GATE in tenth grade.
I first learned what GATE classes were in the fourth grade and I felt kind of dumb for not being in them and I also felt like I could never be in one. This is all despite always hearing that I was smart and getting good grades.
Well that’s all I have to say about G.A.T.E.
I hated doing Biology current event reports in tenth grade. Science has never been my strong suit. I also didn’t like Intro to Business class work. Now that I think of it that was the first class work that I did a great deal of on a computer. The work was quizzes on U.S. government and some other topic.
I try not to talk about myself too much so I’ll try to phrase the rest of this post carefully.
My favorite classroom in ninth grade was the room I had Algebra in. This is despite having a bully in that class. My favorite place in twelfth grade was the community room first with the little school bus I rode home coming in at second. The community room had a pool table and one of my favorite people Danielle. It’s also where we ate lunch. The school I went to in 11th and 12th grade is no longer in operation. I wonder what they did with the classrooms. I wonder what they did with that pool table.
