The story of my life

Kid at heart

People call me Katie.

-I'm from Long Island, New York.

- I wanted to be a teacher in 2nd grade when my teacher danced on the radiator.
When I was in 2nd grade a girl told me I read slow and since then I realized I struggled with reading and school in general. Over the summer I found out I have phonological dyslexia, ADHD, and anxiety. I was entered into the SNAP program. Now I know why I've struggled all my life.

-Art is my favorite subject and always has been. IT's how I express myself and I like writing children books. I wanted to become a Art teacher and live in California, but cam here instead because I'm an indecisive 24 year old.

- I've been in school since 2008 and I just want to graduate , but I have so many hurdles to overcome with standardized tests and it really stresses me out that I feel I can't overcome the Praxis.

-I can identify with the students who struggle and although I can't pass the Praxis. I believe that standardized tests don't measure a student's ability.

-Disney is my favorite and I truly believe it's the happiest place on earth.

- My dog Tobey is my best friend and I put him in my bicycle basket and ride around town.
