Growing up, my childhood was anything but remarkable — that is until the beginning of my sixth-grade year. My parents had gotten a call from my school’s principal during which, she told them I wasn’t reading at grade level, perhaps I had a learning disability and they wanted to send me back to the fifth grade. Unsettling, to say the least!
