When I started kindergarten, we moved to Ohio. We then moved back and forth between Beaver Falls, PA and Ohio for the rest of my kindergarten and first grade school year. I made some friends, then we moved.
In second grade, we lived in three different places, and I went to three different schools in Pennsylvania. The three places I lived were Freedom, Baden and Ambridge. I made some friends, then we moved again-UGH!
Then we moved to New Brighton, PA. I still went to Freedom School in the fourth grade. I finished my school year here. My family decided to move to Beaver Falls, PA, and I finished my fifth grade there. I made some friends, then we moved again.
For the rest of my ninth grade year, I moved to New Castle, PA and I attended Shenango Area School District. Next, I attended the New Castle Area School District for three months and then I returned to Shenango. I made some friends, then we moved again.
In 2012, I lived in New Brighton again. I got special permission to attend Lawrence County Career and Technical Center (LCCTC). Then (yes, you guessed it!) I moved again to Beaver Falls, and I finished my tenth grade year there. I spent two months of my 2013 school year in Beaver Falls. Now, for my eleventh school year, I moved to New Castle, and I attend LCCTC. I made a lot of friends, and we may move again, but I can stay at LCCTC because students of all eight school districts are here.
