Caffrey FrancisENGL 0099 (T/R 12:30p.m.)Spring Semester 2010Personal Literacy Narrative EssayIn today’s world it is absolutely necessary to know how to read and write. Unfortunately reading and writing were never my strong points especially when I was younger. When I was in fourth grade I really started to notice how far behind I was compared to my class mates, and I started getting into embarrassing situations when I had to read or write in front of my peers. When I would mess up in front of the class my classmates would always laugh and point at me. When my parents got a phone call from my fourth grade teacher Mrs. Lin she told them that they really needed to work with me on my reading and writing skills, or I would continue to fall behind. That’s the phone call that led to my worst nightmare; Hooked on Phonics, summer reading lists, and journal writings consumed my every waking hour from that point forward.
