Plagued by severe undiagnosed ADHD and reading difficulties, I began disrupting class in 4th grade. I believed my peers would laugh at me for being "dumb" so I made sure they laughed at me for being "bad" instead. I was defiant, disruptive, and relatively unmotivated. I was "that one kid" that drove my teachers crazy. By sixth grade, my academic skills were so below grade level that I was pulled out of school. Two weeks later in a new school, I had one teacher dramatically change my life. He did in about five minutes what nobody had done between kindergarten and 6th grade. And the amazing thing is that it is something any of you can do with any of your students immediately! Learn the greatest thing we can give to our students to help them be successful and seven magic words that will change your students' lives!
