From some of the ESOL students:
“In 2008, I will never fight and I will never get sent to the office because now I am always in the office. I will never use my cell phone [in school] and never use bad language.”
“In 2008, I will be a better girl and follow the teachers’ and parents’ directions and never say bad words and never teach bad words in my language.” (A perk of going to an ESOL center is that you get to learn to cuss in multiple languages!)
“In 2008, I will read more and I will be nicer to my bus driver.”
I hope they’ve had success so far!
