I was only 5 and begging to go to school, So 3 days before I turned 6 I started first grade at our private school. I loved school and learning and in first grade I won 2nd place in a reading contest. But somewhere along the line I decided I hated math.
By the time I was in 4th grade, I would’ve told any one that asked; “science and reading is my favorite subject, but I hate math!” In my 5th year, mom started homeschooling my brother and I. She bought curriculum just like what we used at school and she set school hours for us. In fact, our home-school those first few years, was very much like school itself. And still, I hated math.
