Have you ever heard of the word Unipac? The answer would be no because there is only one teacher in the world that issues it, Mrs. Ostermeyer. Mrs. O is the name we called her because she wanted us too. She is a ruthless teacher but a really cool person at the same time. She is a little on the short side but rules with an iron fist.
When I entered my freshman year I didn’t think it would be that bad, until I went to her class on the first day of school. Her class was my first class in the morning and it was way too early. Mrs. O immediately gave us notes and began to tell us what was going to take place in her classroom for the rest of the year. Mrs. O starts talking about this Unipac thing and said. “It will be the longest paper you will write in your life.” That’s about all she told us about the paper. At the time I thought it was going to be horrible, because of feedback from people that wrote it before. As the freshman year went by, sophomore year came, but luckily I didn’t have her as a teacher. Junior year came along and it was not fun at all. Since we had a year off from her the first day of class we talked about the Unipac more in depth this time. Mrs. O said it was an option to do the paper or not, I did the paper because it counts as six College credits.
The paper consisted of 4-5 sections the fifth section being bonus. A period of 4 months would be the completion time for the Unipac, each section would be turned in each month. In each section the minimum page requirement was 10 pages. At the end of each researched section there was to be a section quiz, it was the easiest part of the whole paper. At the end of the sections a final test would have to be made up. Do the math and that’s about 70 pages of pure writing. The first section I handed in Mrs. O had red marks all over my paper because of all the errors. I really didn’t think I had a lot of errors, but literally...
