This Is Me Essay

629 words - 3 pages

It was the beginning of grade two when I had a new math teacher. Till today, I could still clearly remember her gorgeous face. However, it was her extreme way of teaching which thoroughly annoyed me.

Unfortunately, it was my idleness and conceitedness that overtook my deserved success.As my father later commented, I had to get over my pre-conceived notion that the amount of homework was too much for an elementary student. In the eyes of a father, especially in the...
