Throughout elementary, middle, and high school I participated in lots of fun activities and traveled to many different places. One event I remember from my fifth grade year that does not have a picture to go with it, is definitely a memory I want to forget. Though I do not want to remember the memory, the day sticks with me whenever I’m in the same kind of situation. There’s always those kids that are quiet and shy in class, but when around friends, they are more confident; those kids were me.

At McKinley Middle School there was block scheduling, meaning that groups of kids traveled to each class with each other. My group’s math teacher’s name was Mrs. Tate, but we all had a secret nickname for her: Mrs. Witchy.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
