Booker T. Washington Middle School at 108th between Amsterdam & Columbus is a place I grew up, from the age of 6 years old. Booker T. Washington was a place where I went every day after school throughout the
I am amazed at your comment on “Washington Middle School” because they talk about school and a basketball game. I am from Mexico but I live in California. One phrase you wrote that makes me interesting is “When I was young, I used to be apart of the dancing crew and also ran track for a couple of years.” Because he speaks like he was a person who went and liked to walk partying.Thanks for your comment I hope to see what you write next because I was interesting.
Dear Charissa: I am excited about your post, “A place I will never forget” because you are describing how you felt when you were doing that kind of thing and even if you change the program, those memories will remain in your heart.
One phrase he wrote that caught my attention is “As a group, we will always be at Booker T Washington Park, watching people play basketball or like the children we were good morning” I think this is exciting because before coming to the States United, I played soccer with my friends, we challenged other grades, that was when I was in sixth grade and you said that it is something you will remember, I remember it a lot because until now they were very beautiful moments when I was going to Mexico for my house there is a court and with all my neighbors and my friends, we play and have a great time.
Thank you for writing. I hope to see what you write next, because I would like to know if you have more beautiful memories, oh, if you got into new programs and could tell how your life is going at this age. Nancy
My first impressions of the poem “To My Dear and Loving Husband” were how Anne Bradstreet wrote this poem to prove her or maybe someone else’s point of view of her love to a certain someone. One of her

Dear Charissa : I am Curious by the age you were when you started going to the park your Photographs of , “A story to tell,” because you show that you are at a basketball court, did you only go to the court when you were younger One part of your Life story that stands out for me is where You talk about how much you did when you were younger I think this is interesting because… not a lot of kids do as much as you said you did when you were younger Another part that I found interesting is where you went there everyday after school and in the summer This stood out for me because you must have loved that park to go there everyday, showing how much it means to you Thanks for your story . I look forward to seeing what you make next, because the amount of detail you put into your writing is amazing, you describe it really well.

Hi Charissa, I like that you seem very persistant seeing that you have moved back and fourth from PA and NY. transitioning schools might have been hard for you. Tell us more about that experience. How are you liking your new school so far?
Dear Charissa: I am in agreement with your bio and feel that I can relate because I also go to harvest and have picked up on some of the things that you have. Being that I’ve been here for a little longer I’ve had more time to get adjusted but your doing fine and you’ll be good. One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “Yes, I find it overwhelming, but I do what I gotta do to through it. I find myself around a lot of people at different times, and alone at others.” I think this is very honest because I also feel the same way. Even though school is a place where we interact the only thing that really matters is you getting your education reguardless if your alone or not only you can control what you do with the opportunity of school Your Poem in a way reminds me of my freshman self and to be honest I’m kind of still the same Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write

Your bio reminds me of something that happened to me. One time … in my life Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next hopefully its soon. Maybe we can speak more in school so we can talk more about our sisters and family together. One last thing why do you choose a picture of your sister and not you.

This is a youth-powered publishing platform that was started in 2003 by a group of teachers from local sites of the National Writing Project.
We merged several earlier blogging projects. We have found that there are many advantages to bringing students together in one site that lives beyond any particular class. It’s easier for individual students to read and write about their own passions, to connect with other students, comment on each other’s work, and create multimedia posts for each other. Further, it’s been exciting for us to pool our knowledge about curriculum, connected learning, and digital literacies.
There are over 8,000 posts and over 13,000 comments by young people on the site on topics as diverse as the American Dream, Shakespeare, and sports as well as original poems and stories.
Youth Voices is a platform for youth to write about their interests, both in school and outside of school: what they are reading, what their hobbies or future careers might be, what they enjoy in their spare time. Like all of us, students follow our national leadership and form opinions. They are also welcome to write about those topics as well.
Youth Voices is fully non-partisan and welcomes youth of all types, from all regions, and with all viewpoints. Educators support youth in writing and thoughtfully responding to each other through the use of commenting guides, using tags to show common interests, playlists to support self-guided inquiry; opinions expressed by writers are their own.
If being part of such a community makes sense to you, we invite you to join us. We welcome all youth and any teacher interested in having students publish online and participate in the give and take of a social network like Youth Voices.
