Everyone has good or unpleasant encounters. During anyone’s life there are encounters that have positively or negatively marked the heart. These encounters have helped some people move forward or backward. I had a special encounter that helped me thought my life as a student to always carry on. That particular encounter that I had was the first day of kindergarten. Ever since I was a little girl I dreamed of attending school. Although the first day of school was daunting, it brings wonderful memories to me.
On that first day of school, I woke up very early in the morning tit so much anticipation. I slowly sat on my bed fully awake and wondering what the day ahead was going to be like. I rushed to the bathroom to quickly take a shower. After taking a shower, my mom pulled my long brown hair into a nice tight ponytail. After I finally finished my early morning preparation to school, my mother tossed my lunch box and water in my backpack. As my mom drove her car to school, she spoke encouraging words to me.
As soon as we arrived at school, my hands felt clammy. My mind raced so much that I could not think about anything else but how school would be like. I slowly walked toward the two massive school doors squeezing my mother’s hand. My body screamed inside as I entered the school premises with my mother and older brother. My mind raved with many thoughts as of how I was going to make friends, or if the teacher was going to be mean and cruel. I lacked confidence of how I was going to do on that day.
After a long search to find my classroom, my mother handed me over to the teacher. The teacher that received me was a tall blonde haired lady. She introduced herself and said her name was Mrs.. Katherine. She really knew how to help us be comfortable and feel at home. When I sat in my assigned chair, I looked around and noticed that I was surrounded with so many children of different races and nationalities. The only people who I interacted with prior to school were my parent’s and older brother.
I thought that all the children in my class were going to be eager to start school like me but instead I saw several of classmates crying when their parent’s left. I tried to act nonchalant about it. After several consecutive classes, it was time to go to recess. I rushed to the playground along with my classmates. Mrs.. Katherine organized different games for all of us to play together. It was very thrilling to me because it was going to be the first time I played with someone outside of my house. That day I became friends with Alexandra who became my best friend later on.
After that, we spent the rest of the day together until the school day was over. After the day concluded , we were dismissed to finally go home. I packed my backpack and waited for my mother to arrive. After my mother arrived, I walked through the school doors, I was happy to know that I would be in that classroom for a whole year. Very excited, my mother gave me huge hug. I couldn’t stop telling my mom everything I had done with my new rinds, how friendly the teacher was, and how excited I was to learn new things.
My heart Jumped with the thrill of the thought of school. The first day of school was a memorable day in my life. It was the first day that I was outside of my house for longer than usual. I am always going to remember that day because I met the most important trends Nat I t nave ever had. This day was particularly exciting that to this day I remember it as one of the best days of my life. It was something that marked my life positively. I thank God for this wonderful experience that marked this new chapter in my life.
