The start of this year was my second year at my new school. I knew some kids but not a lot. I wanted my fifth grade year to be an AWESOME year with a good teacher and lots of friends. When I walked in to meet the teacher, I knew it would be a good year but one thing I figured out quickly is that we are a “talking class”.
I made a lot of friends though I am used to being shy. I joined the school play, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, and that was definitely not in my comfort zone. My friends and family helped and supported me through auditions. I was less shy and I loved it way more than being that person who never talks. I mean I still do not raise my hand often and am not a chatty box.
There are some really chatty people in this class, I have to say that. The thing that makes me feel bad is that some kids in this class, or maybe this grade, are sitting alone on the playground. I feel so bad for them and other kids take them over and don’t let them have a voice. They boss the quiet kids around, especially when the teacher isn’t looking.
Sometimes I do not have a voice, I say nothing but it’s frustrating. I believe EVERYONE should be heard, no matter what. I’m hoping this year will be different. I’m tired of being ignored. I hope my teacher can hear me.
