Amazing isn't it Charlie?

 

In High School I was voted "Most Likely to go to Prison" .  

 

I'm now in year 34 of a law enforcement career.

 

I have yet to be on the inside of any actual prison facility.

When I was in second grade, my parents were told I was sufficiently learning and possibly mentally-disabled, that I'd never see a high school diploma and if I could get a menial job, to be happy I did that.

 

I wonder what those teachers would say if they saw me today, as I received my Master's in Education?

And yes, those are my parents. Sometimes, I'm not sure if they believe it, either!

I'm a retired Special Ed teacher, and it's good to see that someone proved me right.

...and a lot of other people wrong.  ^_^   Congrats on receiving your Master's Degree, Charlie.  :)

Congratulations, Charlie! That's a hell of an achievement! You need to make some copies of that degree and send it to those that doubted you with a note telling them where they can stick it.

Congrats Charlie, that's what a lot of doctors say about my daughter. She has what is called "Kabuki Syndrome" and they say that her delayed progress and a host of other stuff will keep her from learning as much as she should. Of cours they said that 5 years ago and she's six now and she's already proving them wrong. Teachers may think they know as well as the doc's but they're not always right and if they are they cannot gauge human will power to succeed!!!!

Again, CONGRATS!!!!
