School has always been a dreary miserable place for me. I could barely manage to make it through the day with everything I had on my plate this past year. I still remember the first day I let my English teacher into my life. I had always trusted her from the start and I desperately needed her so I confronted her. What I barely knew myself was that I had begin to hurt myself physically. And what I began to learn because of her was that it was really something deep inside that was hurting me. She has helped me in so many ways. And completely opened up my eyes. Life has been too rough for me and I am glad I found someone to really open up to. My English teacher is not just a teacher, she is a real hero because she has showed me there is much more to life then what is here now in the present.
