I was thinking earlier today about how I had a fantastic teacher in Senior Kindergarten. She worked with my mother to get me set up on an individual education plan and was fantastic at explaining to the other kids why I spent time doing reading comprehension with an aid instead of listening to story time, or why I'd sometimes be out of class or doing different activities. She always made me feel included even when quite frankly, I wasn't a lot of the time. Things could have gone horribly for me if she hadn't been so adaptive, and I'm grateful to her and my mother for making sure that I got an early start on my education. Do you remember your Kindergarten teacher(s)? If you don't or skipped kindergarten altogether, were there any other teachers in your early academic life who were particularly influential? If you were home-schooled, how old were you when you began schooling? What sort of socialization options did your parent(s) make sure that you had?
