Help Me Return Back To School Early
In March of 2017, I got expelled from Jacksonville Middle School for a disorderly conduct charge. I had, and still have to attend an alternative learning environment because of my past behavior. I have been at the Crossroads Learning Center for a total of 7 months. I had an evaluation meeting this past Monday the 20th , where I was told by the dirstrict Board of Education that they didn't think I was ready to be released back into the "regular" population. That hurt me the most because I've really been trying my hardest to stay on track. Being in this type of situation has helped me to greatly improve my attitude , and my outlook on life as a whole; My grades , and overall behavior have also taking a turn for the greater good of my future. This entire experience has helped me pin point my strong suits , and work through my bad tendencies. I made sure that I was caught up on my work , going not only two , but sometimes three or four times a week to get the work that I had missed for those days during my expulsion , I stayed up for countless nights perfecting everything that I was given. I never got more than six hours a night of sleep because I wanted everything to be done and corrected. I was angry , and depressed because I just wanted to go back and fix my mistake. But I know that what i'm going through is no ones fault but mine , I was careless and wasn't thinking. Not being in school tore me apart as well , I just wanted to have the same opportunities as everyone else. I let my actions , and quick temper hinder me from achieving my goals and being as caught up as everyone else. Being rejected in this past meeting hurt me , I've been trying my hardest to keep my grades up , fix my attitude , and improve on how I handle certain situations. Everyday I wonder why I did what I did , to end up where I am today. But , I've lived , and learned from my past altercations , and experiences. I'm not the same person I was seven months ago , I've changed and I'm hoping everyone else will notice it as well. This petition isn't me asking anyone for sympathy , but for your understanding , and your empathy. It's me expressing my sincere apologies to not only myself , but the people that I hurt along the way as well. I'm turning my life around , & steering onto the path of triumph and greatness.
