5th Grade Math Class Analysis

Good Essays
According to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary, the definition for failure is, “Lack of success.” I’ve experienced failure on multiple accounts, but the one experience that truly made a difference to me was in my 5th grade math class.
Before the school year started, every student had to take standardized math test so that the teachers could evaluate the student's’ level of understanding. The teachers thought that I was “borderline advanced” but they still placed me in the advanced math class anyways. Glowing with excitement, I was tremendously proud of my understanding of math and was extremely eager to be in my first advanced class.
As the first few weeks of advanced 5th grade math went by, my self-esteem and my confidence had plummeted

I went to a predominately “white” area where the morals and teachings of schools were a bit more robust and structured. I was offered this chance at school because we used my uncle’s address to prove that I was in that school…

    enough to experience this past spring. I took on the role of coaching a 5th grade volleyball team. I volunteered to spend every Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and occasional weekends with this crazy group of 5th grade girls.

The gym was full of smiling, screaming, dancing 5th grade girls. At that moment I thought how am I going to deal with this all season…
