    I was struggling in school so much that my school didn’t know what to do with me. Eventually I got expelled so I went into homeschooling, my mother found someone called Pam and ever since then I’ve been able to do the work problems I’ve never been able to. At first it was extremely hard but what isn’t when you start something new, so I kept trying and before I knew it I was doing it in my sleep. Whenever I couldn’t do something we kept going at it and before the week was over I was able to do it with ease. Eventually I wanted to back into a public school and my mom finally did so. Once I got in I thought I was going to struggle because there’s no one going to help me little step by little step. Nope, I took a StarTest and the school came to me the next day and told me that my score was higher than the high school level. If I am to struggle in anyway and can’t find help at my school then I know where to turn if that happens, [email protected] Pedro M Milwaukee, Wisconsin
