Humans of State High

“I went to a really small school back when I was in middle school, and there are two teachers that come to my mind when I think of my middle school experience. I think it’s because they were always there for me and I felt as if I could talk to them whenever I needed to. When moving from 5th to 6th grade, I lost a lot of friends since we all went separate ways. I then tried to become friends with my classmates, and I tried to fit in with the popular kids in my grade. I never liked my class back in 6tth grade; it was filled with racist and homophobic people. I am a part of the LGBTQ community so I was obviously affected by it, and that’s where most of my problems arose in 6th grade. By 7th grade, luckily most of the rude people in my grade had left, and I was able to find a much better group of people I soon became friends with. I quickly learned that it was better to make a new group of friends that will actually support me, and we didn’t need the popular kids. I still do think I grew a lot as a person during my time in 6th grade, and I am so grateful for the teacher I had then. They were all very supportive and inclusive, and they did a lot for me around that time.”
