O.K. so you may be wondering why in the world I would be putting a post about Golf on my Pre-K sight. Well, I hate golf it is boring and long, I have had no interest in it at all until today, Easter Sunday as Bubba Watson and a guy from South Africa went on a shooting match for the win. It wasn't the adrenaline that got my attention but my dad saying, " If Bubba Watson wins it will be a popular win, he's and ADD guy like you and your brother."
Just like my obsession with Michael Phelps at the summer olympics a few years ago I find enjoyment in seeing those who struggled in school find success. As my Dad stated before I myself am ADD and my brother is ADHD. I spent the last hour looking at interviews about Bubba Watson and not only found that he describes himself as a typical ADD kid but also that he is a Christian! I have to say I may be following his golf career from now on.
This is just to say WE CAN DO ANYTHING to those teachers and administrators who said we couldn't, to say that WE CAN LEARN if we are met where we are and understood for who God made us and that WE ARE SUCESSFUL PEOPLE who can use what some see as weaknesses and turn them into strengths!
You can probably tell that I have strong opinions for those who are diagnosed with learning disabilities and then thrown into a classroom where they are just passed on instead of taught. I do think the school system is doing better by kids like me in this century and hopefully the school system and teachers will continue to seek out best practices and teaching strategies that allow everyone to be successful in their own way.
Go Bubba Watson!
