Yesterday, I received an Instagram message from @Mrs.SuperDuper, a.k.a. Coach Rachel Sirwatka, who shared with me her video, "You Are Never Getting Your Pencil Back." And I couldn't wait to share it with you! Coach Rachel is a science teacher who makes videos (like this one) for her students. Not only is she hilarious and spunky, she has the right idea about how magical an ADD or ADHD diagnosis is. Watch this video with your children or loved ones diagnosed with ADHD/ADD, or even by yourself, for an inspirational reminder. To quote Coach Rachel:
"Middle school, high school, and some of elementary school: that is the only place ever in your life where you are going to be praised for being just like everyone else. Once you leave there, everywhere you go, no one wants to see how you're just like everyone else."
