My education wasn.

My dad was a truck driver.
My mom was a receptionist.
My mother-in-law was a janitor.
My sisters and I were the only kids in our family.
I worked a full-time job at an oil refinery, and I didn’t know how to get a degree.
My parents worked full- time jobs for a few years, and then I was home with them.
I got an A in school, which was fine.
My grades were average.
I was the lowest of the low.
My school didn’t even give me credit for the A’s.
My teachers didn’t give me grades.
I learned how to cook at home and to cook with a knife and fork.
My life had never been better.
I was so excited about school, but I wasn.
My academic skills were nonexistent.
I couldn’t think up an essay.
I could never remember what I’d been taught in school.
I couldn’t even read the grade book.
My only knowledge was that I could do a lot of things on my own.
I thought I’d become a doctor.
I thought I was going to go to medical school.
But when I graduated, I couldn.
I graduated with $100,000 in debt.

I’d never been depressed before.
I really was just overwhelmed.
I felt so hopeless.
I just felt like I needed to do something about it.
I tried to do everything I could to get my degree, and it didn’t work.
I felt like a failure.
I said, “What am I going to do?
I just don’t know what I want to do.”
I started working part-time.
I’m an attorney.
I have a law degree.
I do things that people don’t expect of me.
I’ve become a teacher, and so far, I’ve been very successful.
I teach at the school of nursing.
I get to work with nurses, which is a big difference.
I taught nursing students at the University at Buffalo for two years.
They’re really bright and really motivated.
I love teaching them to read and to write.
I also get to learn more about the profession, and how to manage people’s expectations.
And that’s when I really realized what my education was.
When I went to graduate school, I did really well academically.
I earned an A, which wasn’t a great score, and the rest of the time, I was just trying to figure out what was wrong with me.
I realized that I was very, very, really, really smart.
I never had any problems with academics.
I actually had really good grades.
And then I realized that the real problem with me was my brain.
And the real reason I was such a failure academically was because I had a bad brain.
The Bad Education Cast of MIKE BENNETT: ‘I could never get an A’ on my exams’ article The real problem was I was a really good student, but the teacher’s grade wasn’t really that high.
And I was still in the same classes, and they weren’t teaching me as well as they should have been.
And so when I was like, “How am I supposed to get an F in this class?”
They said, No.
That’s not fair to you.
That is not fair.
They were trying to help you, but they weren.
It was unfair.
I realized then that I needed therapy.
I needed to talk to a psychologist.
I needed a psychiatrist.
And there were people who were so good at it, but then they just couldn’t handle it.
It got to the point where they would just tell me, “Well, if you’re struggling, you might want to get help with your anxiety.”
And that just wasn’t the case.
I went to a therapist for three months.
He’s very, smart, and he knows what he’s talking about.
But he was very very judgmental, and that was a problem.
And it became a bigger problem because when I left, he didn’t have any of my problems, and everything was going
