• Post-it note from first grade

  • rant essay in 6th grade

  • Romeo and Juliet

  • Mrs. Youngblood

  • it showed me that you cannot write exactly the way you speak

  • It showed me that writing can be a fun way to get all your thoughts out

  • This book showed me that what we hear from others is not true

  • Mrs. Youngblood showed me how books can affect our daily lives and how important they are

  • my friend and I had gotten into a fight so i wanted to go talk to the guidance counselor

  • i could feel the darkness in her room that showed she wasn’t here

  • i saw a bright highlighter colored set of post-its on her desk and thought i should write her a note

  • “i fit with frind and i hate her, i wanna talk to u msraven.”

  • i didn’t realize it then but that was not a way to talk to a teacher!

  • later that day, when we were all silently reading our book in our own little world, Mrs. Raven came up on the intercom.

  • She was asking about someone who left a post-it in her room and I was so excited to finally talk to her

  • she had been the person who settled my arguments for the past 2 years

  • when i got to her room, she was sitting at her desk still looking at the post-it

  • “Hi Mrs. Raven!” “oh Ngan, was it you that wrote this?” “Yes mam”

  • “today, we are going to write about a rant” “WHATS A RANT?”

  • she then started saying how its something of an essay, but its an essay that you can complain about anything in

  • we started working on the essay for a few days, and in those days, i was stress-free.

  • i had always thought that writing was the worse part of english, of school, of life but this broadened my horizon

  • i hated romeo and juliet. it was possibly the worse book in the world

  • everyone says that it was an epic love story, but as i read it in 8th grade english, all i could think was that we would be done in a couple weeks

  • I had always been a romance freak when it came to things like books and movies, but romeo and juliet had so many horrible points and jokes, and was also written in a type of english that was hard to understand

  • we use books for homework and to do well in school

  • we use books to feel and know what feelings like scared and love and comedy is

  • books are a way to escape and there are always more, and more books because its a never ending cycle

  • she asked me to read the lightning thief and see what i thought of it, because they only thing i read in 3rd grade was the magic tree house books

  • i finished the book in one day. i was so excited because i never knew a book could be so descriptive and it felt like i was watching a movie as i read

  • i wanted to be able to feel that feeling again and kept reading and reading until i was the top reader in my class because i read 3 books in 2 weeks.
