This is the part you need to hear!
Mrs. Anderson did two extraordinary and yet unbelievably simple things.
First she realized I was an extremely inquisitive little boy.
I did not want to be told something was true, I wanted to be shown.
The second thing she did - she told me I was smart.
I was just a little boy who had been taught he was worthless, I looked
at her and said, "NO I'm stupid."
She looked me straight in the eye and said, "You’re smart and I'll prove it to you."
