edu180atl: andrea moreno 11.29.12

Last summer I found out I had to switch schools. I was devastated.  An old classmate from my old school that goes to Sutton texted me “It’s really fun. Don’t worry.” I thought she was just saying that, so I wouldn’t feel bad.

The first day I was very nervous.  I had the worst expectations about school. I cried the whole way there. I hid inside my shell.

In Social Studies, my teacher cleared his throat and began talking about a subject that I hadn’t taken concern with: South-West Asia. He passionately talked and pointed, spitting out facts as he went. I was mesmerized. I didn’t think that it was possible for us to be learning about this in 7th grade. I wrote everything he said as fast as I could.  I forgot about my anxiety.  I found hope.

A few days later, I called my best friend (who still goes to my old school.)  and practically recited everything I remembered from my notes.  Naturally, she was also amazed “Wow, where did you hear that?” When I told her it was all from my class, she just laughed. “ Andrea, they can’t teach you that at public school! My parents are paying money for my education and our teacher just sits on her computer all day.

That hit home.  I quickly said goodbye and thought about what she said.  I wasn’t offended.  But my friends words mirrored my own previous opinion. I had judged the entire idea of a new school with unfounded hatred, and it turns out it is better than the place I was at before!   Thank you teachers, parents and God.
