I couldn't read or write until I was 15 and had to teach myself.
Now that my 7 children are grown up, I went to uni last year, now in my 2nd year studying Criminology. Seeing two things on my social work files.
1. Reason for being received into care in big capital letters: ABANDONMENT AT BIRTH BY BOTH PARENTS and 2. 'This girl is impossible to teach.'
Both stuck in my mind all these years, especially thr 'impossible to teach'.
2. I think of how proud I'll be able to make my family.
3. I go and watch a TEDTalk or something.
My teachers' wrath.
