you need to get a tutor if you are failing in a class. if you need to just survive, :)just listen to your teachers and school rules,be in your seat before the bell rings and you'll be fine. you'll do worse if you panic and stand in one place till the bell rings! it will take awhile to get used to , but then you will act and feel as if you have been doing this stuff since kindergarten. pray and ask God to help you get through this tough year. he's always listening to you!
