One thing most people don't know about me: When I was in 3rd grade I was placed in a Learning Disability program. Some people are more familiar with the terms short yellow school bus, or LD. Truth be told the teachers at the time didn't know how to teach me because I learned differently than most. I tested out of the program and staff admitted that me being in the program was a mistake. I'm the kind of person where if you are teaching me then it has to be fun and interesting or I will get bored, daydream, or create stories in my mind. Yes, there are some students who truly need extra help. However, there are creatives like me who are labeled. Learn the difference!
