The "Special" Room

By: Kristin, Age 14, Tucson, Arizona

I go to a special room.

I like it there because I get help with my school work. My teacher is funny -- i like that.

The only thing I don't like is that kids in the normal classrooms either treat you really nicely or mean. Nothings wrong with being nice but i get annoyed when kids treat you nice because they now you are LD.

When kids are mean I draw back into my shell and hide because it is no fun to be teased about something you can't control. So I am special ed but I will achieve my dreams and in my heart i now it is okay and good to be different. Otherwise the world would be boring.

Don't listen to what others tell you follow your heart and you can do anything!
