I come from a Hispanic descent, and was born and raised in Orange County. Spanish was my primary language. It was a strenuous pace in kindergarten as I tried to comprehend the English language, and communicate with my peers and educator. As a slow learner, I often received assistance from my educator. I remember at times wanting to go to the restroom, hesitant to ask my teacher, nevertheless, words slipped out “ Me go to bathroom?”. I was put into the English Learner’s program to improve my comprehension of the English language.Wary of my learning abilities, my educator, Ms.Guillen said to my mother,“Your daughter is a gradual learner, and if it continues, she will flunk the 1st grade.” Frustrated at what my teacher had to say, my mother…show more content…
If I was really lucky, I would get A’s.

I doubted myself because of the words my teacher said about me and how I wouldn’t make it in life, they were always in my head all the time.

I am so proud of myself for my accomplishments, even though I wish I could go back in time and do my best like how i’m doing right now. I still can’t believe I went from a D and F student to a A, B student.
