My teacher wants to take me out of Spanish class!?
I haven’t been doing too well with my Spanish class, so for next year, my teacher wants to put me in this class called Resource, where you learn organization and study skills. The kids who are put in this class are generaly not very bright, and often get made fun of. I don’t know what to do. I want my teacher to reconsider, but she thinks this is a good desicion. Please, please help me!
My mom wants me to be in Resource, so I don’t think she can help in this one.
Are there any other optional classes you can choose from? If you’re not good at Spanish and are good at technical stuff or maths, maybe you can have a class related to those instead of the Resource one. Maybe Spanish isn’t for you, but that doesn’t mean that you HAVE to go into that Resource class instead.
That’s like when I was in the 8th grade doing Latin and Greek and some guidance councillor told my mum she should send me to special ed. Where I could learn packaging (as in working in a factory packaging batteries or special packages of laundry detergent and stuff like that). I had trouble with Greek because of the different letters but I finished high school (even did 3 more years of Latin without too much trouble still). I’ve now been diagnosed with PDD-NOS (on the Autism Spectrum) so I’m guessing she suspected something back then and that was her reason for saying that, but I think I’ve proven that I have more potential than that. I’m glad my mum stood by me and refused to send me to special ed – I’ve worked in factories especially designed to employ people with a disability (as a temp) but that was not something I could have stuck with indefinitely.
Organization and study skills are useful, but if you don’t feel it’s for you, try and find another option. Arts, woodwork, computer class, extra math – there has to be some other option instead of the Spanish, they shouldn’t be able to force you to choose a certain class (except for the mandatory ones like English and maths obviously).
