Since the 6th grade my mother would take us to the library. I have always checked out a lot of books. I would go down the rows of books and pick at random, so I read a lot.
When I went to high school I was put in a college level spelling class, which I failed. I was then put in a basic reading class, which I aced! All through high school I did well on the things I liked, like U.S. History. If it had not been for all the reading I had done, I would not have made it in high school.
