So us “big” kids would have to wait until all the lower classes were picked, and then it was our turn. I was sitting next to my best friend at the time, Joni. One by one, all the students’ names were called and the classes (there was three) went to their rooms. And I was left on the floor, all by myself!
They had left my name off the roster! The principal, or someone from the front office, came up to me and asked me what class I wanted to be in. So I gave them the name of the teacher I thought Joni had gone with. And it was the wrong one! I was devastated. I walked into a room full of students, and didn't see any of my close friends. Needless to say, I made a new best friend.
|They added someone else's name to my elementary school !|
And now that I look back, that experience was a forewarning of things to come. It was the summer between my sixth and seventh grade that I got deathly ill and missed half of my next school year!
