I am a 7th grader at the middle school, and school is ending in 12 days. Everyone says middle school wil be "the best and worst days of your life," so I was very scared when I started. However, they are nothing but the best years of my life. I never imagined I''d have such etraordinary teachers and friends surrounding me. My English teacher, for example, is so amazing that she got my essay grades raised from a C- to an A! I could never ask for anything better than this dreamlike school, and everyone I know would certainly agree with me.
