A Thank You Letter To My Mentors, Former Supervisors and Educators, by Erin
Erin Mayo, one of NCLD’s Young Adult Leadership Council members, authored a blog for NVLD Project to recognize the mentors who have been crucial to her success. The NVLD Project is dedicated to raising awareness, building support and creating helpful solutions for children, adolescents, and adults with Non-Verbal Learning Disability.
Below is an excerpt from the blog. To read the full version, visit https://nvld.org/thank-you-letter-to-mentors/
“I believe that the educators in the public school district I attended made a significant difference in teaching me the tools to compensate for my LD all the while wanting me to succeed. The educators inspired me to go into education myself and celebrated with me when I tested out of specific education in February of my junior year of high school, after being on an IEP for 14.5 years. I truly believe that without the wonderful, hardworking, dedicated, passionate educators in the school district I attended, I would not be where I am today.”
