I felt bad for her because he was try and she just couldn 't do anything she would get really bad headaches from writing a little paragraph and it would take her like an hour.

When I talked to other people I would look and examine their face expression because I was afraid of saying the wrong thing―even around my friends.
In college I could be a tutor and help clear the fog away from the brains of some of the students to have them get the grades they want to obtain. Then, since my plan is to be a high school math teacher, tutoring is great practice for me to learn how to get the point across to the students and help them not hate math, unlike so many middle school and high school students do today.

In 7th grade, I transferred from Bryan Middle school to Visitation Catholic School and there was not enough room in the accelerated math program, which ultimately set me behind. In high school, I found myself bored in math and knew I needed to challenge myself, so I ended up setting up a meeting with the math department head and we discussed my options.
