Greetings to all of you fellow students from 2015 – 2016. Boys and girls, parents, staff, Mrs. German, and Mrs, Deitz, and Mr Fitz my teacher.
Leaving Elementary is a really big deal for me. Sometimes I even panic because the days go by quickly and it’s getting even more closer to the end of the year. I really don’t think I’m ready for middle school. I’m gonna have to be more responsible, and there’s gonna be more work and I don’t think I’m really ready to take that yet. But I have no choice other than to go back to fifth grade again which I’m not gonna take as a choice.
When I moved from El Salvador to America, I was 3. Once I turned 4 I went to Pre-k and I didn’t understand a single word of English, or what my teacher was saying at all. I just made a face like huh. I could only speak Spanish. Learning English in pre-k was one of the most biggest accomplishments I’ve ever accomplished, well that’s what I thought when I was little because I learned a new language and I thought it was cool. Then I turned 5 and went to kindergarten in Daly.
Now I’m in 5th grade and that’s when I met new people and friends like as you guys all know well the students in my class, Daniella, Leandra, Nyima, and Lionel. They’ve always been there for me to support me, either when I was down or hurt they always have. They’re such good friends and I don’t know how to thank them enough and I’ll try to be there for them too and try to be as good friends as they are but that’s hard because each one of them are unique. Well in their own way.
When I was in kindergarten I wasn’t really that kinda girl that really liked to express herself I didn’t wanna be my weird self because I thought people would think bad about me but I wasn’t really shy either and I just can’t believe I have gotten here and I really feel proud of myself.
What I’m really looking forward to in the future is graduating in college to be a doctor or pediatrician one of the 2. But one of my other goals or something that I’m really looking forward to is learning how to speak french since I already speak Spanish perfectly, but not as good as Mr. Fitz. I’ve always wanted to learn how to speak french that way I could speak and conversation with french people and one of my best friends Leandra. Then I’ll know 3 languages, Spanish (kind of), English (kind of), and french.
Huh, I can’t believe I’m finishing 5th grade (that’s not official yet) and going to middle school, even if I’m not ready. I’d like you say to you guys to live your dreams and live life to the fullest. Thank you guys it’s been an honor to be here.
