Okay so when I was younger I wasn't really great at math. I was good at other
stuff like literature and language arts and history and all that stuff but I
just couldn't do math as well as I could do other things. I was home-schooled up
until fourth grade when I started actually going to a public school and
the first year I was there I really really struggled in math class my
teacher didn't help. He would purposefully call on me even though my
hand wasn't raised for a problem. I don't know if other teachers do that but it
just didn't help in my case whatsoever. And he would call on me and I just, I
would never have the correct answer. And I'd always I would turn red and I would
get all flustered and I would mutter and it just made everything so much worse.
That didn't help my self-esteem at all because the other kids would look at me
and be like" oh why doesn't she know math oh she's such an idiot for being a
homeschooler oh." And I did know math it wasn't my
strong point I mean we all have weaknesses and stuff stuff like that.
Most people watching this are good at math and I bet some aren't but that's
okay. Yeah this continued for a while and I tried to get there but it just
wouldn't stick in my memory as much as other stuff would. So I passed fourth
grade and the same stuff happened in fifth grade. Like, I wasn't really getting
a hold on anything and it just wasn't really my favorite thing to do and I
really tried to prioritize it and help myself. And my parents tried to help and
they even made me stay after school so I could learn more things about it and
that didn't help either. And I had another math teacher and he wouldn't
help either. He would do the same stuff the previous teacher would. He would call
out my name even though my hand wasn't raised and I'd have to sit there like an
idiot and just keep quiet. And then all the kids would laugh me and he'd go on
to a different person which i think is a wrong way to try to teach somebody who's
just calling out on them when they're not expecting it. And I'm in eighth grade
now and I did pass six and seventh grade. It is pretty much the same story for all
the grades that I struggled in math. And now I am taking out on at school and I'm
home schooled again and I've gotten so much better at math and I can do stuff
that I'm confident with and I'm just grateful that I'm not as bad as I was.
And it just takes time and it takes a certain kind of
person as well and you just have to know what's right for you. Like you don't have
to be great at a certain subject you can be perfectly fine in another subject and
I'm telling you this story because I know a lot of kids out there are not as
great as other stuff. It could be a sport, it could be a subject in school, it could
be literally anything. But it's okay if you don't get that
hold on whatever you're trying to learn. It's just that you don't have to change,
you just might want to improve and it helped a lot.
