Thank You in Advance

My childhood upbringing is the single most important factor when it comes to how my literacy has been and will continue to be developed. My formal education career began when I stepped foot into my first pre-school classroom in 1999. Ever since then I have been gaining various literacy sponsors that have further helped my literacy skills. I have grown up in the city of Chicago my entire life, I have been exposed to an urban education by attending a CPS grade school. I changed it up completely by attending a more conservative, private, catholic high school. I was born in a predominantly hispanic household where English was a second language at home, but first language in school. I was introduced to Latin American literature like “don Quijote”  way before I knew who Harry Potter or William Shakespeare were. My parents greatly influenced the material I read. In my free time I spent so much of it playing video games on all Sony products, too much time on Facebook and Myspace, and just the right amount watching TV and and ESPN. As I grew older I began to develop an interest in Hip-Hop culture. All of these things can be counted as sponsors for my literacy and I am thankful that is how it went about. I wouldn’t have had it any other way so I am very thankful for that.
