A Great Opportunity To Mend My Future

My name is Erick Muchira .I thank my father so much for bringing me to a center of academic excellence called Highway ECDE Center.I had a hard time understanding things before coming to this school .However in2009when came to Highway school the positive attitude that teachers gave tome and the positive self confidence they built in me shaped me and built a totally new being out of me. I now know how to read,write and i find school the best place to be.I play with my friends and i am able to develop into all areas be it socially,physically,morally,emotionally etc.I have liked my teachers so much that i just want to become like one of them.
