I would to go to school on a scholarship I didnt known if they scholarship for people with dyslexia

Evelyn Lovato  on 8/14/2020 7:19:00 PM

Hello my name is Evelyn Lovato I am 23 years old, I'm studying to become a teacher for either Kinder or 1st grade. I have a twin sister who is studying to become the first pastor in our family. My story began in Elementary when I was taken out of my normal class and sent to the office, where a person that deals with dyslexia testing began to test me, to understand what level of dyslexia I had.

Later on I was presented with a job, I was going to become an assistant teacher in a private preschool, I'm currently working there and I have been promoted to lead teacher now. Once I shut those thoughts with the help of God, I found myself and I found that I'm a person that loves decorating and love doing craft with the kids I teach. My life as a person with dyslexia has been a rollercoaster, I have learned things and I won't change a thing, because through this part of my life, this little part is where I finally have found myself as a person and also as a future teac
