When I walked into Mr. Clayton’s class last year on the first day of school I laughed when he said, “I’m going to teach you how to read.” Little did I know he wasn’t kidding.

It is very hard for her each year because as he continues to further his education, the more she has to email and have conferences with his teachers to make sure they understand exactly what is going on.

Through our high school career I observed the persistence of Eve, the drive for pursuing the arts of Michelle, and later the carelessness of Kevin develop in my friend. Ever since I met Isaiah he had a strong drive for his academics.

Hello Dr. Pressey, That is a great analogy on the auto-correct feature as compared to tech toys. (Yes, I definitely know of Howard Cossell ). Your “NAW” example would have definitely been frustrating for me – since the acronym had little or no relevance to the request.
