Starting in about 4th or 5th grade, I started noticing that school was getting more and more difficult for me. Simple tasks like: listening to a lecture, taking notes from a board, having to learn through hands-off demonstration, or reading became arduous tasks. For the years followed, we tried different techniques and even tutoring, but I continued to struggle. My only successes came with projects and tasks allowed me to take part in tactile learning. In January, my parents requested formal testing through the school district and it was determined that I have a learning disabilty. In May, 2017, I was placed on an IEP that took effect the start of the 2017 school year. With the IEP in place, I was given weekly one-on-one help with a support teacher, and given tools to use in the classroom to help me make more successful. I ended my first semester with a 3.2 GPA and I feel confident that I will be able to maintain that GPA through the rest of my high school career. My goal is to become a elite college football player. And I'm a natural born leader that not only gets the work done in the class but also on the field. This has been the game I have played since I was 8 years old. I can play every position. Whatever the team needs me at I will gladly do it for the team. I'm a team player that would do anything for his team mates.
