So, one day I asked my teacher, Mrs. Franco, and asked if I could stay and work on math during lunch. Although my parents made me ask this, Mrs. Franco was still surprised. At the time, I was not happy that I was going to miss lunch, but I knew that I needed to sacrifice the time to achieve my goal of not getting 2’s.Before learning anything, Mrs. Franco has motivated me to do my best, she explained to me why I should always apply myself, do my best, focus, and ask questions. Also, she moved me to the other side of the classroom, away from my friends. This had helped a boatload. In the course of a couple of weeks, I would come in every other day of the week to get extra practice. This had helped me a lot, but I got to the point where I did not want to skip lunch anymore, I wanted to be with my friends more that my math book, so I asked,” can I stay after school instead?” Mrs. Franco replied with a yes.
