“Hands shoot up all around me, a forest of arms straining and connected to minds that understand, to minds that know. A slight twinge of shame flushes my cheeks. I feel anxious and exposed. This feeling has become as familiar as water. Every day the nervous flutter, the twinge inside, the blank, the sinking reminder that I don’t get it, that I don’t belong here, that I am alone.”
When I read this passage from My Thirteenth Winter, a memoir of a student with a math learning disability, I wept for my students. This is what they feel when they go to school. Many of them with high IQs but are faced with the deep shame that they can’t do math.
