Clarissa Childress ED220C 12 September 2016 Westmoreland Elementary School I moved to Westmoreland, Kansas when I was 5 years old. I was in first grade and I think it was in the middle of October. Previously, I had attended Riley County in Riley, Kansas. My  mom and I moved to Westmoreland to live with my grandma since she had knee surgery. I  remember being terrified and feeling out of place at my new school. Luckily, another little girl  named Morgan got assigned to show me around and show me how things were done in the first  grade. Morgan actually is in my Introduction to Teaching class with me and we are still best  friends to this day! Westmoreland is about the same size as Riley, so I did not have to get used to a bigger city. Westmoreland has 778 people living in the town, but some students obviously live  outside of the town as well and ride the bus to school. About 95% of the population is Caucasian, .4% is African American, and a little over 2% is Hispanic. Honestly, I could tell you who those  specific people are, since I know literally everyone in the town. I have lived in four different houses in the tiny town of Westmoreland. First, we lived  with my grandma. When I was in third grade, my grandma moved into an apartment designed for senior citizens across town, so my mom and I also moved out. We moved to a raggedy house  right across from the elementary school. I started walking to school every day, which was a new  experience for me. Although I could walk from my old house because of how small the town is,  my mom or grandma still drove me and picked me up. When we lived across from the grade  school, I would walk a few blocks to my grandma’s apartment while my mom was working. We  moved again when I was in seventh grade to a duplex home down the street. I was still close  enough to the grade school, but just a couple of blocks down. By that time, I did not attend the  elementary school, but still had to walk to the school to get picked up by the bus that took us all  to the high school. Once I was about to start freshman year of high school, we moved again to a  newer home with my mom’s boyfriend at the time. They are now engaged and we still live there! The classes at Westmoreland Elementary are grouped together by grades. First and  second grade are combined, third/fourth, and fifth/sixth. Although the grades are combined, there are two to three classrooms that they all share, and the kids rotate throughout the day between  classrooms. For example, in my third/fourth grade classrooms, my homeroom was where I kept  all of my belongings and had my assigned desk with my name on it. In my class, I had third and  fourth graders. For science, we stayed in our classroom while the class next door had social  studies. We would then switch rooms and I would learn social studies in the classroom next door. For “novel studies”, which was what we called reading once we got to third grade and above, we  had three classrooms and depending on the level of reader you were, you went to a certain room  with certain kids. I think this is a unique way of forming classrooms because the children are  able to meet others who could be a year older or younger than them. I also think it was a neat  strategy because we would never know which teacher we would have and who would be in our  class. I remember getting a paper in the mail telling me who was all in my homeroom with me  and which teacher I had.  I think most of my teachers were amazing people, and it was such a close community so  we all had a fun time and could talk about our families with teachers and they understood who  we were talking about. I distinctly remember our principal dressing up as Elvis every single  Halloween. He was also a KU fan, so in the morning when all of us kids were in the gym, he  would say “All KU fans can go to their classrooms.” He would make the rest of the children stay  put for a couple of more minutes, just as a joke. As a whole, our school did some pretty awesome things. I remember my sixth grade teacher shaving his head because of some bet. I cannot  remember what bet exactly, but he definitely shaved his head in front of the entire school. We  also put on talent shows in which the fifth and sixth graders got to perform. The whole school  got to watch and parents were invited as well. The school is actually a very old school. In fact, my grandma attended high school at it.  The doors are old and when you walk through it in the dark, it is pretty creepy. One newer aspect of the school is the elevator. They installed an elevator when I was in third grade I believe.  Another neat thing we received was a brand new playground. During the summer between fifth  and sixth grade, the school torn down the old playground and installed a new one. Our class was  thrilled that we got to be the “top dogs” during the first year having the first playground. It was  actually a pretty big deal to the town that we got a new playground. I think attending a smaller school was a fun experience and I did not have a lot to worry  about when it comes to bullying. I think if I had transferred to a Manhattan school I would have  been terrified. I also think that going to a smaller school could be what steered me towards  Emporia State. I do want to be a teacher, so that was my main reason for coming here. I do not,  however, think I could survive going to a huge university. Sometimes I wonder if I would have a  different type of personality if I did go to a bigger school, but I am glad I went to one of the best  schools in Kansas.
