What pain it is to struggle with the inability or disability to understand written English. As a child I would always rank last in the class. The joy I felt when once I came in second last? Indescribable! I had one teacher whom I loved. She made me feel very special. Because she gave me her children’s comics when they were finished with them. Coming from a very poor family these comics were like purest gold, treasures beyond measured worth.
I thought she was giving them to me because she cared about me. What I was too young to understand was that while I was sitting in the back of the class reading these fun picture stories, all the other children were being educated. I was separated from what was going on with the rest of the class. And when test time came I always failed. I’m sure she must have thought she was somehow getting through to me, but what were the results? When I got older and realized what I had been robbed of, I felt angry. I felt betrayed this ‘caring’ friend of mine. I felt as though she had put me aside in order to get on with her real job, teaching students worth teaching. It hurt. Time has passed and I have come to the place of forgiving her.
But, oh how I long to understand it all.
