This memoir is about looking back on all of my school days so far and acknowledging the good’s and bad times that I’ve had during these days. The first school I went too was the Knox church. The second school where I spent seven years at was Caudle Park elementary. During my easy years in junior high were spent at A. J. Smeltzer. I don’t remember a lot about my days in preschool. I went to preschool at the Knox church. During that time my mother didn’t have her license so we had to walk there every morning.
That’s probably one of the most memorable things about my time there. Waking up in the morning and walking 30 to 45 minutes to preschool where I would only spend 3 or 4 hours there. I remember having so much fun playing games and sports in the gym. I also remember one day where this annoying kid kept taking everyone’s toys and when he came over to take mine I pushed in on the ground and got a time out. (He never did take anyone’s toys again) I spent my elementary school years at Caudle Park elementary.
These years were some of the best years of my school life. My grade four teacher whom I forget her name was by far my favourite teacher I’ve ever had. She always told us stories about her travels around the world and played awesome songs about all of the different times tables. My least favourite teach was probably my second grade teacher. This was the only year in my entire life that I didn’t get an A in math. She taught math by giving us hundreds of sheets at the beginning of the year and we had to hand them in at the end of the year.
Education is the fundamental key to our everyday lives. Knowledge is what keeps our economic growth possible. We are all taught, since childhood, that learning is a way to empower one’s self, which is why our school systems are an important part of our society. Recently, a debate has emerged as whether the year round calender is better for our students than our current ten month calender ...
I would always ask her to explain it to me but she always told me to figure it out on my own and not to ask for help from anyone, resulting in me barely finishing many sheets. The easiest school years of my life were spent at A. J. Smeltzer. I was in French emersion the three years that I spent there. In my first year there we had a pretty horrible teacher teaching the grade sevens French. She never really taught us any French we mostly just watched movies which were in English. But my English teacher on the other hand made up for it.
She loved almost all of the stories I wrote no matter how ridiculous they were. I had one teacher for mostly all three years that I spent at A. J. and that was Mr. Moyse. He was always in a good mood and was always cracking jokes. He also stood out a lot, mostly because he was 6’11. My days in high school have been good so far. This year has been especially easy as a result in having classes I enjoy and having little to no homework. I hope more of these days come and that I continue to remember all the great times that I’ve had during my years in school.
