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.
