In 4th grade, I had Mrs.Schneider again. At that point, I was speaking English fluently understanding it well. I got a chance to be in the spelling bee, but misspelled the word "swagger". I made so many new friends and learned a lot of new things. Middle School!!! 4th grade Even though I'm not completely done with 6th grade, I still want to talk about my favorite experiences. In the beginning of the year, I was so psyched to finally be in 6th grade and have Mrs.Zukowski as my teacher. I made so many new friends and started mixing them up in different classes. I moved to the highest math class, and got to go to Outdoor Ed where some of the best memories and times in my entire LIFE happened. I feel like I've improved so much and I feel very accomplished. Last year, I had Mrs.Klein as a teacher. Mrs .Klein gave me one of the best elementary experiences that I had ever had.
