School plays an important role in our life. We spend so much time at school that it becomes our second home. This time is precious because it only happens one time in life. You can never doing this again.
This is a short story about my school life. Two years ago I graduated from the Ternopil Classical Gymnasium but I still can`t forget those happy cheerful school years. Generally I think it is one of the best schools in our town. I don't remember my first day at school very well but I'm sure I was excited, anxious, and a bit nervous before my first lesson. However afterward I was very enthusiastic about it. From the first days I found new friends. Some of my classmates were as cunning as a foxes and as wise as an owls and some were as quiet as a mouses and as slow as a snails. Despite this we were very friendly and close to each other. My first teacher was very likeable, sensible and clever person. I liked her very much. I suppose I have always been a teacher’s pet. I have never played hooky and goofed off. I was an eager beaver and I always came to class before the others students. All the time I tried to do my home tasks perfectly that`s why my marks were above average. Some subjects at school were as easy as ABC to me but I have never buried myself into books. I know that I was bad at writing essays and assignments. But now at the university I learnt that it`s a good idea to start with a mind-map when preparing an essay. And also it is good to write a first draft before writing up the final version. I can`t forget my first exam, I felt apprehensive but I knew the subject inside out. I wasn`t a bookworm, I just looked at past papers and memorized some things. As a result I passed it with flying colors.
To sum up, I think that school years are very important for every person. It`s a period of becoming adult, achieving knowledge, and choosing your way in life. Very often school friends remain your friends for all your life. So I`ll never forget my school, my teachers, and my classmates.
