I was embarrassed, and I tried to hide my problem from my teacher. I fell behind in all of my schoolwork. Some of the kids called me a dummy. It hurt me a lot to be called names . In the third grade, I found out I had a condition called dyslexia (dis-LEKS-ee-uh). People with dyslexia see letters backward. Even though I was glad to find out why I had trouble reading, I was still afraid of going to school. But my mom told me that the only way to overcome my problem was to face it .
