I feel dumb in class

 

Dear Not a Star Student,
Very few kinds shine in every subject. Many students who ace English stumble over math, and many mathematicians can't handle French verbs. The point isn't to be great at everything; it's to find what you are best in--then run with that ball. A few years ago, three women won a Nobel Prize in science. One, Carol Greider, said, "I had a lot of trouble in school and was put into remedial classes. I thought I was stupid." Stupid? She's brilliant! 

When classes start after the holidays, roll up your sleeves, sit up front, keep up with your homework and, if possible, talk to your teacher or a learning specialist about how you feel. The most important thing for you to remember is that you don't have to be perfect--but you do have to try. Making a sincere effort to do a good job is something to be proud of, no matter what grade you get.
