.. or myself. I remember telling myself that if I got out of this one that I would never do another bad thing while I was living. My teacher Mr.Keulaber came in the office and following him was the lovely principal Mrs. Kunkel they both looked serious, I knew that if I could get Mrs. Kunkel’s punishment and not my mom’s or Mr. Keulaber I would survive.
But the first person I was crossed examined by was Mr. Keulaber; he transformed into a different person who was not to be messed with. I sat in the principal’s visitor chair thinking that it will all be over soon all that I had to do is to listen to them. Mr. Keulaber first word to me was What the hell is the matter with you; I didn’t know how to answer it so I didn’t say anything. I have 29 other students to worry about I can’t give you all the attention, I’m just one person and your not working with me. I hope that you and your mom have a nice talk when you get home.
I was happy that Mr. Keulaber was done with me now all I had was my mother because Mrs. Kunkel was a nun before she was a principal and she wouldn’t do anything to me. My mom came to talked next she told me the worst phrase in the world when it comes to my mother she said, I will see you when I get home. That was over and all I had now was Mr.
Kunkel she made me feel so small that day I would never want discipline from her again. I learned a lesson that people are not always the way I think they are. I couldn’t believe it I survived the worst punishment in the world I taught I went home and turned on the TV until my mom got home from work. When she got home she told me to go to bed, I went straight to my room and fell asleep because I didn’t want to hear any smart comments from my 3 older brothers and my sister. It was still early when she sent me bed I believe it was about 6:30pm and the sun was still out.
At about 12:00am my mother woke me up not to eat dinner but to talk, everyone was seated on the kitchen’s round table, and I was seated in the head chair, the chair in which you sit in you talked. I felt like I was King Author at the round table, I had to answer about 2 million questions while I was half-asleep and half-awake. I didn’t take to mind what they were telling me, I just heard but I didn’t listen. I felt that I got off easy with my mom, maybe because my sister and brothers eased her to a talk to me. If my mom would had found out the real reason that I had ran away she would had beaten me in the principal’s office with the principal watching.
The next day at school I faced my biggest challenge, my teacher Mr. Keulabor this was the day that changed my life. I went into class after all the students did, I thought as I walked in the class I would say sorry to the girl I had my interaction with yesterday. Well, I walked straight passed her desk, which was in front of the class and whispered, a little sorry. If my mom would had of known of what I had done to the girl she would have had me do something like that, so that’s why I did it.
After apologizing I speed walked to the back of the room where my desk was located. No one knew what I was talking about when I said sorry, but I did and I felt much better after saying that. I sat down in my chair knowing that it was all over, because I had my punishment for running away and she didn’t tell anyone what I did to her. She didn’t tell maybe because it would be embarrassing for the both of us. On the chalk board Mr. Keulabor had just started his lesson, he wrote WHAT DO YOU PICTURE YOURSELF AS AND DOING IN 10 YEARS our assignment was to write a in class essay on that.
I did it but not in the correct way, I seek out some interests in my brain and started an essay about them. Mr. Keulabor went around reading every student in the class essays, when he got to me he didn’t read it, he threw it in the garbage. I didn’t say anything because I felt that he was mad at me, he told me that he would talk to me after school. I pictured him yelling at me about running away from his class again and I wasn’t going to show up for that altercation.
After school I sat in my chair and watched as Mr. Keulabor walked all the students out of the door. I said to myself if I didn’t touch that girl I wouldn’t have ran away, if I didn’t run away then I would be sitting here right now. He sat down in front of me in a little chair just as I had, and he said Were do you see yourself in 10 years? I looked at him and said I don’t know, he said it again Were do you see yourself in 10 years? Then he said the words that changed my life think about it; and tell me something tomorrow, I was excused after that. I went home with the same attitude, that I was happy that I got out of there.
After dinner with my family I sat on my bed and thought about what he said. I didn’t see myself going anywhere in life and all I saw was that I was going to be a drop out if I didn’t straightened up. In seeing that my life was not going anywhere, I became motivated and inspired to do better in class, my grades and behavior both improved in one marking period and has been the same since then. I was Mr. Keulabor’s student of the year and he voted me into the Young Scholars Liberty Partnership Program, because his confidence in me was great.
