But not many people know that I almost failed 5th grade!
I struggled in school every year of elementary school. And each passing year, my grades and learning only got worse and worse. Any teacher that saw me, and my downward spiral of learning, could tell that I would never be a student that excelled in school.
My learning got to its utmost worst when I was in the fifth grade. My reading comprehension was at a second grade level, and my grades across the board were terrible.
