From the heart...

One of our teachers found this in the classroom from a student who had been attending Oak Hill a short time.

 

"Oak Hill is a great school for people that have dyslexia. I have been learning a lot more lately. I love it and I think that when I leave I will be a 100 percent improved but I will be sad. The teachers are very nice."

"I'm jealous of the crows who get a scarecrow as a friend and I have none.

I'm jealous of the leaves who get sunshine for energy and I have none.

I'm jealous of the bees who get honey to drink and I have none.

I'm jealous of you who has a life an I have none."

"Dyslexia is not a disfortune it's a gift. Dyslexia makes the beholder know that he's different but he knows that he is not alone. Dyslexic people have a wide variety of imagination. Dyslexic people think outside of the box. Just like Albert Einstein."
