Storyboard Text

  • Because of a School, My Life Has Changed
  • that dog is so cute!
  • I was in fourth grade, a normal student at Our Lady of Hope Regional School, a catholic school in New Jersey. It was almost the end of the year. I loved all my teachers, friends, and classes. 
  • Jillian you love EVERY dog.
  • It was a Saturday morning when my parents told us that catholic school was getting expensive, so we had to move to closer and affordable school. They decided on a public school. I did not want to leave my friends but I said "okay" anyway. 
  • I was getting tired of catholic school anyway. I'll go.
  • I don't want to move
  • Okay.I'll go.
  • Me too!
  • I'm going to miss you so much!
  • The last day of school everyone knew I was leaving. We all were sad, and cried. My best frieind and I cried more than anyone there.
  • Summer flew by and soon it was the first day at my new school I knew only one person from my old school. I sat next to my sister who was going into 7th grade.I didn't really know where to go. I felt nervous for my first day. I didn't know what to expect from a public school. 
  • I had so many questions
  • How do I get across this school? Will I make any friends? Will school be hard? Are my teachers nice?
  • After a few days, I got used to my new school and made good friends. But so many things were different. I had a locker, I got to learn german and french, I could wear my own clothes, and I felt more free than I was in catholic school. At the end of the year, I stood at my locker, still amazed at how great this year had gone. I was eager to come back, ready to take on sixth grade.
  • Wow, this year has gone by so fast. I can't believe this is the last time I'm seeing this locker.
  •        Now I'm in sixth grade, and I still remember my first day, going on the bus and sitting with my sister while everything question I could think of popped in my head and wouldn't get out of it. From changing schools, I realized that I can deal with change. With that thought, I finally decided to do something I wanted to do since third grade, try out for the dance competition team. That summer, after I tried out, I got a letter saying I got on The Dance Factory competition team. I also got recommended for advanced class. I still had to deal with change, but I could handle it better. Even though I had to change schools and also changed the way I learned didn't mean I had to change completely. I still do some things from Our Lady of Hope in WMS. I still kept up my grades and kept my personality the same. After that big turn in my life, I was still...me.
