Caffrey Francis ENGL 0099 (T/R 12:30p.m.) Spring Semester 2010 Personal Literacy Narrative Essay In 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.
