Held back

Posted By: Sarah Kirkpatrick on April 15, 2002
 
Jill,
I didn't find out until I was 16 years old that I had been held back in Kindergarten! It never impacted me in a negative way. As I talked to my parents as a teenager I found out that they thought I was "socially unready" for the first grade. They were right! I am now finishing my Masters Degree and interviewing for jobs as an elementary principal!
