Timothy

My name is Timothy. I was born in Flatbush, Brooklyn and I grew up in Canarsie, Brooklyn with my two brothers, mother, and father. My grandparents lived upstairs from me. My mother’s name is Brenda, and my father’s is Anthony. The first few years were pretty cool because I played up and down mostly. By the time I was four, I began pre-kindergarten at the Annex a few blocks away from where I lived. There I met some more friends and my two teachers Ms. Mosses and Mrs. Vegas. They were cool teachers because we did fun activities such as arts and crafts. After pre-k I started kindergarten and that was a big step for me. There I met my kindergarten teacher Ms. Springer. Kindergarten was pretty cool too. The rest of the years in elementary were alright but the year that I liked the most was the fifth grade. I started the sixth grade at IS 211. Since then, I have been going to my current school, which is the Legacy School for Integrated Studies.

I thought of graduation for a ceremony because from there it’s a path ahead of accomplishment, either coming from high school or finishing college and pursuing the dream of 
becoming a doctor, a scientist, and so on.
Graduating is a step that shows that you’ve completed what had to be done, it is something that could change your life.
