Learning to Read was Hell for me.
I think it may have been due to me having dyslexia, as well as another learning disability, and also Bad Teachers.

My first grade reading teacher was a witch!

And no I’m not censoring myself, every year I was at that particular School she dressed as a witch for the School Halloween party.
never had the nerve but I always wanted to ask her where her costume was.

over the years I tried to practice and I got a little bit better.

when I finally got into college I took a class to improve my reading skills.

The teacher was a complete a******.
I didn’t sensor that my speech recognition did.

I can read okay now but I don’t enjoy it. Right now I’m using text-to-speech software to read comments and proofread my own posts.

You should’ve. I imagine it would’ve been very satisfying.

Parents taught me when I was 4, could already read the newspaper by the time I got to kindergarten. Mostly Dr. Seuss, Wonder Books Easy Readers, and the daily newspaper. Despite this, I am actually a very slow reader - takes me weeks to get through a novel.

My sister taught me when I was three. Being a typically annoying little brother, I was constantly interrupting her homework by inquiring as to what she was doing and what she was writing. Inevitably, she soon tired of this and in order to put an end to the inquisitive interruptions, she devoted a few hours every afternoon to teaching me the alphabet and within a matter of weeks I was reading and writing.
