Did you remain at the same school(s) or transfer to a number of different schools growing up? How did your early educational experiences impact your self-esteem and confidence?
when i was 3 years old my family moved to where we have been living for the past 17 years.
( the 8th of next month to be exact will make it 17 years.)
but ive been to 10 schools and lived in the same place.
kindegarten to 2nd grade i was at grantie falls elementary school
3rd and 4th grade was at hilderbran elemntary school
5th grade was at ray childers elemntary school
6th grade was at east burke middle school. ( i had a bomb threat on me in that school.)
6th grade to 8th grade i was in heritage christian school. ( i was put back in 6th grade again because they were too full in 7th grade. and i only went half the year for 8th grade , my friends moved away out of state and no one else in the school liked me so i begged my parents to let me go back to public.)
second half of 8th grade : i went to granite falls middle school.
9th grade : i went to south caldwell high for half the year then , i went to east burke high.
( after a big problem happened my mom took me out of high school for good , i was 16. )
i tried homeschooling for one month. i didnt like it.
so i got my adult basic high school degree , and ive been in college classes for 2 years in caldwell community college and technical institute.
( and i was in blue ridge job core in marion VA for 3 weeks. ) so technically it was 11 schools.
well , i had a few friends in school . probably 5 or 6 through out my entire school experience. i was the weird un popular kid. ( no im not trying to sound like a sob story. lol . just telling the truth.) the kids made fun of me all the time for my religion / looks / weight , ect.
it did take a toll on my esteem , i grew up hating myself , crying all the time. now im on college and i noticed they still avoid me. haha , like in my history class , i noticed kids i went to school with, and the next day of class the 2 rows infront of me were completley barren and everyone is on the opposite side of the room. oh well , it hurts a little , but im glad i have online friends. * hugs everyone * ive learnt that i like what i like and i should never be embarrassed about myself ,
* Im a Fan-Girl and im Proud!*
ive been to many schools , and trouble has fallowed me everywhere. but im in college and im somewhat happy with life.
