My most memorable event in school I emigrated from Taiwan to the U. S. when I was 7th grade to receive a better education. I was enrolled into Montserrat middle school when I migrated. Although I thought that My English level was good and fluent enough at the time; I got placed in an ELD (English Language Development) class. I soon earned my teacher’s (Ms. Kuwait) trust and validation in class. My most memorable event in school is the first day of my ELD class. I and my guardian went to registration for middle school during the summer. The receptionist asked me all kinds of question to know where my level of education is.
The receptionist also told us that there was no guarantee that I am going to be admitted into the school since more people are registering that the number of people allowed to be entering the school. My other option is to try to be enrolled into Morrill middle school, but both of my guardians said the other school is a place where most of the Mexicans and drug dealers are and they are worried that students in the school will influence me. As soon as I heard their comment about Morrill middle, I begin to worry about my future. The era of anxiety ended when my schedule at Sierramont got mailed home.
The first day of school in a unfamiliar environment is always the scariest and one of the most exciting school day. Meeting new classmates, new teachers and getting to know more about the school is all part of this new school year. As I get seated in the ELD classroom, Ms. Kuawada started to introduce new students to the class and started an activity in which students have to know about each other. During the activity, I discovered that some of the classmates are people who came from Taiwan and I became friends with them. Ms Kuawada also gave us a test to see what our English level is, as oon as I finished the test, I found out that my English level is not as good as what I have expected. I am so glad that I joined the ELD class since it has helped me a lot in English and I recommend this class to people who have problems with English. As a result of ELD I got transferred into a regular class when I was 8th grade. I also learned more about the history, vocabulary of English. I have learned a valuable lesson that whatever you think about yourself it might not always be true in some cases. I have also learned that even some basic knowledge will assist you to a higher level of education.
