End of Year Reflection – Greatest High School Achievement
My greatest High School Achievement for me would be when I got a 3.5 at Lincoln High School, for my first semester. Our 4th period teacher Mrs. Seckington (homeroom) was passing out our grades, and she said only a few actually did well this semester. I had a lot of problems going on at home, and some of the time I would be late on things, or wouldn't be able to come to school. My last name is Williams so I had to wait last to see if I was one of the few that did good, and when she called my name and I saw her smile and her face light up, I knew that my grades were good. Another reason that was an accomplishment because when I showed my adoptive mother for once in her life she said she was proud, and she didn't hit me. Like that made me feel like I actually did something to make her happy, and make myself happy. This incident hasn't really changed me, because that's the last 3.5 I had, but I know I can get better, I just need that motivation back. There is not really no one I need to make proud of me right now but myself.
