What a sad commentary on how one thoughtless act can alter someone's life.
I work with dyslexic and dysgraphic children one-on-one every day and see this situation all too often. Well portrayed.
As an English teacher for many years, I need to say that there are people in teaching that should never have been granted credentials. One of those teachers was my teacher in an earlier grade that did absolutely nothing to help me with my problem. But thank God, I eventually found a music teacher and drama teacher that cared enough to go far out of their way to help give this ex-stutterer a hope and a future.
This story really touched me. Broke my heart, actually. It is well written and I'm sure was a strong contender for placement during last week's challenge.
