“Society has told me I should have been working as a greeter at Walmart or bagging groceries at a local grocery store but that’s not me”
Derek “Tank” Schottle

Looking back on my life, I now know why I was struggling in class while others seemed to put in zero effort. It is imperative for every kid with learning differences to have that person they can go to for help and make sure they are getting proper support in their classrooms,for then they too, will achieve greatness.”
