Friedell Conferences… So I thought.
Thursday morning, November 8th (the week before our final begins)
I asked my manager if I could go to work an hour early today so I could tag along with my mom for my sibling’s conferences at Friedell Middle School. She told me the day before if I could go with her and so I asked my manager the day before. He said yes, but if I would’ve known that there was extra credit for Bonnie’s class (which I need because I have a C.) I would’ve asked for the day off. So I missed that opportunity cause I worked at the time the event started so that sucks… I still have to have to come up with my next week’s question, but I’m sure I’ll think of something.
Thursday 6:30 p.m., November 8th
We arrived at Friedell, I walk in the entrance closest to the gym because that’s where most teachers set up their tables for conferences. Soon as I walk in a para approaches me and hands me a pamphlet. That’s neat when I was attending here they only had half sheets of paper. Then I read the title that said “Welcome to Friedell” and that’s when my dumb ass remembered it’s open house. I felt tricked. I felt lied to. I felt deceived. I felt like typing that was cheesy and overdramatic. Walking in I the gym I saw all the teachers lined up. My heart beat started to raise a bit because I knew I would have to speak in front of parents. I asked my mom why didn’t she tell me and she said “I did” (in a Mexican accent(duh))… but that didn’t stop my siblings from freaking out, (oh also forgot to mention they came along too). Every open house teachers let students that used to attend Friedell be questioned on their experience in Friedell. They’re not really “difficult” questions. But that didn’t stop two of my siblings to stay in the car so it was just up to me and my sister to make up cheesy yet true responses to the questions.
Time passed by fast, the open house was done with and luckily I forgot what they asked me but finally, the time arrived… I get to go see some of my old teachers. I started to walk around the small school and I saw most of my teachers and their classrooms. Mrs.Monet and Mrs.Naymark taught me science. Mr.Ellerbush taught me History. Mr.Larson taught me Geography. Mrs. Morgan and Mrs.Maine taught me Math. Mrs.Ringen taught me music. Mrs.Pralle and Mrs.Egle taught English and Reading. Walking again in the classrooms brought back so many memories and also so many scary questions. That’s when I knew what my question for the week was going to be or should I say questions.
That’s the whole story kids of how I developed my questions. If you want to know what the questions of the week was read my next post where. I’ll post my predictions and thoughts on how the experiment/will roll out.
