He stinks!- one girl screamed. I looked around and realized she was talking about a boy next to a window near our teachers desk. He is retarded, another girl told her, leave him alone. It was (….year) or around that time when there were no special education classes. I remember that boy was sitting always alone and sometimes he screamed or had tantrums. During other times he went to girls dress room before the PE class, hoping he could find any of them naked. No one paid attention at him and everyone knew that he would be working as a worker when he grows up.
I wanted to talk to him because I wanted to help. But how could I help if I was bullied myself. So, one time I was sitting alone on the bench and that boy was around. I asked him if he did his homework. He answered he never does his homework and he does not have to. He was repeating his grade twice and eventually they would let him go because they need labor in the country. I asked him why doesnt he want to try again and again. And he said he was tired of trying, because it did not work for him. But, he said, I am just a retarded person and I really hate math and reading. And he left.
I was thinking that I was not smart myself, or was I? Sometimes, I used to catch myself rereading word math problem so many times because I tried to understand it. Many children believe that they arent smart, arent fit, or just cannot probably accomplish what they want because they didnt achieve it on the first try. Its not the number of attempts that counts, but the ultimate accomplishment, that is what really counts. From that day on, I learned that whenever I fail or fall short, I know that all I have to do is go beyond the boundaries and try harder, again and again. Only then, will I succeed. I also want to teach my future students not to give up, I want them to succeed in life by trying and learning from their mistakes.
