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. Then after testing they called in my parents to let them know of the results of my testing, one thing I still remember growing up is hearing the teacher letting my parents know that I need to be like my twin sister, smart, from then on I began to feel like an outsider and that I want able to ever get to the level of the other normal students. I was taken out of the class and was placed with other students with the same or other learning disability. I continued to push through and work hard to make A and B in my class but still those thoughts that I wasn't good enough kept on running through my mind. why wants I smart? why wants like my twin sister? where the thoughts that kept on coming through my mind growing up. But I knew that teaching was the path that I wanted to follow, it wants until the end of Junior year in high school when my life changed for the better, I found God in my life and I knew I was favored as a child in christ, all those negative thoughts that I once had went away forever, I found myself. 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

Remembering 9/11

September 11, 2020

by Izzy Hall

Today marks the 19th anniversary of the devastating September 11th terrorist attacks on the United States of America. We honor those who lost their lives in the attacks on the Twin Towers and the Pentagon, as well as the first responders who gave their lives rescuing survivors, and the passengers of Flight 93 who thwarted the hijacker’s plans. The events of September 11, 2001 touched the lives of all Americans and redefined a generation. Now, even in the midst of another national crisis, we feel it is appropriate to take the time to remember this tragedy. [...]
