Do you think life this far has been a struggle?
I used to think I was the only one who struggled. I struggled with reading, spelling & everything that had to do with school.
By the time I was 10 years old I was already entering my 6th school & I was entering mid-year.
I had just been Expelled from my old private school after I was diagnosed with Dyslexia & ADHD.
I was ashamed, embarrassed & most of all, I didn’t want to drive 4 hours a day to get to & from my new school.
Even more than that, I didn’t want to make new friends again.
I wanted to give up.
But something inside me made me go & give this school a try.
All I could think was, how is this school going to be different from the last?
I don’t understand anything in school. I can’t learn at school, I can’t do the work, No one will help me learn the way I need to.
Even though I was scared to death to try again, I did it anyway.
I am not a quitter & I was going to keep showing up until I found somewhere who knew how to teach me the way I need to learn.
I really didn’t want to be homeschooled & never get to play with kids again or have gym or recess or organize my famous recess football game again.
I found the place who knows how to teach me the way I needed to learn.
I didn’t think it was possible to be happy again at school.
To have new great caring friends.
To have a place to call home again.
But I found it!
